Question

In each of Exercises we have provided summary statistics for independent simple random samples from two populations. In each case, use the pooled t-test and the pooled t-interval procedure to conduct the required hypothesis test and obtain the specified confidence interval.

x1 = 10, s1 = 4, n1 = 15, x2 = 12, s2 = 5, n2 = 15

a. Two-tailed test, a = 0.05

b. 95% confidence interval
