An obstetrician maintains that preterm babies (gestation less than 37 weeks) have a higher variability of birth weight than do full-term babies (gestation 37-41 weeks). According to the National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 48, No. 3, the birth weights of full time babies are normally distributed with a standard deviation of 505.6 grams. A random sample of 41 preterm babies results in a standard deviation of 840 grams. Test the obstetrician's claim that the variability in birth weight for preterm babies is more than that of full-term babies, at the level of significance 0.01.
Any help on figuring this out would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
