Step 1

From the given information, the claim of the problem is new machine is filling with significantly more than the old machine.

Let us define µ1 be the population mean for old machine and µ2 be the population mean for new machine.

Null hypothesis:

H0: µ1= µ2.

That is, the average filling of soda is equal for old machine and new machine.

Alternative hypothesis:

H1: µ12.

That is, the average filling of soda for new machine is significantly more than old machine.

Step 2

For old machine:

Sample mean: 11.9

Sample standard deviation: 0.3

Sample size: 12.

For new machine:

Sample mean: 12.1

Sample standard deviation: 0.3

Sample size: 11.

Step 3

The test statistic is -1.5971 and it is calculated below:
