12. You are interested in whether the average lifetime of Duracell AAA batteries is less than the average lifetime of Energizer AAA batteries. You lay out your hypotheses as follows: Null Hypothesis: μ 1 μ 2 , Alternative Hypothesis: μ 1 < μ 2 (Duracell = Group 1, Energizer = Group 2). You perform an experiment on 29 randomly selected Duracell AAA batteries and 20 randomly selected Energizer AAA batteries and test them using a battery drainer. The Duracells had an average lifetime of 16.36 hours (SD = 1.537 hours) while the Energizer batteries had an average lifetime of 15.03 hours (SD = 1.771 hours). Assuming the population standard deviations to be equal, what is the test statistic and p-value of this test? Page 6 of 18

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
