Miller (2008) examined the energy drink consumption of college undergraduates and found that males use energy drinks, significantly more often than females. To further investigate this phenomenon, suppose that a researcher selects a random sample of n = 36 male undergraduates and a sample of *n* = 25 females. On average, the males reported consuming *M* = 2.45 drinks per month and females had an average of *M* = 1.28. Assume that the overall level of consumption for college undergraduates averages

**a.** Did this sample of males consume significantly more energy drinks than the overall population average? Use a one-tailed test with

**b.** Did this sample of females consume significantly fewer energy drinks than the overall population average? Use a one-tailed test with
