It can then be determined if the new process is significantly less variable than the old process. Comparing a Sample Variance ull hypothesis is that the new variance is with a Population Variance Null hypothesis is that the new variance is equal to the old variance Alternative hypothesis is that the new population variance is smaller than the old variance One sided test Comparing a Sample Variance with...
