b. Find the probability that their mean life is more than 53 months.

**PsyDAG**, Monday, August 1, 2011 at 3:44pmZ = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means

SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

SEm = SD/√(n-1)

If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to the Z scores.
