(a) Why is it necessary for SAT math scores to be normally distributed to test the hypotheses using the methods of this section?

(b) Determine the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses to assess whether students whose first language is not English score differently on the math portion of the SAT exam.

(c) Use the classical or P-value approach at the á = 0.1 level of significance to test the hypothesis in part (b).

(d) Write a conclusion based on your results to part (c)

b. Ho: mean 1 = mean 2

Ha: mean 1 ≠ mean 2

c. Z = (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 proportion related to the Z score.

d. Is that proportion from c ≤ .01 (.005 at each end)?
