10. A teacher gives 200 students a study guide for a test and the average score was 90 with a standard deviation of 6. She did not give the other 200 students a study guide and their average score was 70 with a standard deviation of 8. Find the critical value to determine whether or not the study guide helped students to increase their test score.

1. Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means

SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

SEm = SD/√n

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/probability
related to the Z score. Does that exceed you level of significance?
