# Derby Leicester is a city planner preparing for a meeting with the mayor. He would like to show that the population mean age of the houses on Lincoln Street is less than the population mean age of the houses on Maple Street so that more resources are allotted to repair Maple Street. Derby uses information from a previous study to assume that the population standard deviation for the ages of the houses on Lincoln Street is 7.72 years and 8.39 years for the houses on Maple Street. Due to limited time, Derby randomly selects the houses on Lincoln Street and the houses on Maple Street from the city’s property records and then records the age of each house in years. The results of the samples are shown in the table below. Assuming the conditions needed for the hypothesis test have been met, what is the z test statistic for this hypothesis test, rounded to two decimal places?Lincoln StreetMaple Streetx¯¯¯1=50.91 yearsx¯¯¯2=59.27 yearsn1=41n2=37
