Use a t-distribution to answer this question. Assume the samples are random samples from distributions that are reasonably normally distributed, and that a t-statistic will be used for inference about the difference in sample means. State the degrees of freedom used.

Find the endpoints of the t-distribution with 2.5% beyond them in each tail if the samples have sizes n1=17 and n2=21.

Enter the exact answer for the degrees of freedom and round your answer for the endpoints to two decimal places.

degrees of freedom =

endpoints  =±
