The null and alternate hypotheses are:H0: m1 # m2H1: m1 . m2 A random sample of 20 items from the first population showed a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. A sample of 16 items for the second population showed a mean of 94 and a standard deviation of 8. Use the .05 significant level. 41. An investigation of the effectiveness of an antibacterial soap in reducing operating room con-tamination resulted in the accompanying table.
