test the claim that μ1 = μ2 Two samples are randomly selected from normal populations. The sample statistics are

n1=11,x(bar)=4.8, s1=.76

n2=18, x(bar)=5.2, s2=.51

Assume that σ1 ≠ σ2
Use alpha = .02

I am not sure if this is a 2-sample t test or do I use ANOVA?

Please show me all steps to get to the answer.

  • Statistics -

    Alpha = .02

    Am I using the 2-sample T test or ANOVA?

  • Statistics -

    Calculate Z = (μ1-μ2)/Standard Error (SE) for difference between means.

    SE Difference = sq. rt. of (SE1^2 + SE2^2)

    SE = Standard Deviation/Sq rt of n-1

    Since it is two-tailed, look for Z < .01 to reject null hypothesis.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
