Here are a few hints: 1. Use a one-sample z-test for both A and B, which is: z = (sample mean - population mean)/(standard deviation divided by the square root of the sample size) 2. Find the critical or cutoff value to reject the null using a z-table for .05 level of ...

This appears to be a hypothesis test involving inferences concerning two variances (standard deviation is the square root of the variance). Sample 1: n = 25; variance = sd^2; df = n - 1 = 24 Sample 2: n = 25; variance = sd^2; df = n - 1 = 24 Note: sd = standard deviation. Test...

Usually you use z-tests when sample sizes are large (n is greater than or equal to 30) whether or not you know the population standard deviation. If you do not know the population standard deviation and have a small sample (n < 30), then you can use t-tests. Therefore, try ...
