Alternative hypothesis states that the mean daily email usage of managers is significantly lower than the executives. H 0 : µ M ≥µ E H 1: µ M < µ E A one-tail test as this question is concerned with: if a mean is lower than the other. b) degree of freedom, df = N E + N M - 2 = 26 + 27 – 2 = 51 Critical value of t for df = 51 at 0.05 significance level for one-tail test = 1.675 To reject H 0 if t < -1.675 Mean of Exec : X E =(4.3+3.6+4.6+4.7+5.3+6.1+4.9+6.2+5.3+4.5+5.7+5.1+4.7+5.4+5.8+4.7+5.3+5.1+5.3+5.6+4.7+4.1+4.5+5.3+6.7+6.4) / 26 = 5.150 Mean of Manager : X M =(4.4+2.8+4.4+4.1+3.4+4.2+4.1+3.9+4.3+3.1+3.5+3.1+4.7+4.5+2.8+3.9+4.2+3.6+3.7+3.9+3.6+3.2+3.4+3.7+3.6+3.8+4.8) / 27 = 3.804 Standard deviation of Exec :
