A researcher wants to compare the variances of the heights (in inches) of 4 year college basketball players with those of players in junior colleges. A sample of 30 players from each type of school is selected, and the variances of the heights for each type are: 4 year colleges – 2.43 inches, junior colleges – 3.15 inches. Assuming the heights of all basketball players is normally distributed, at α = 0.10, is there a significant difference between the variances of the heights in the two types of schools
