A sample of 40 observations is selected from one approximately normal population. The sample mean is 102 and the sample standard deviation is 5. A sample of 50 observations is selected from a second source. The sample mean is 99 and the standard deviation is 6. Conduct a hypothesis test using the .04 level of significance to determine if there is a difference between the population means

Z = (mean1  mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means
SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)
SEm = SD/√(n1)
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.
