The dean of students wants to see ehether there is a significant difference in ages of resident students and commuting students. She selects a sample of 50 students from each group. The ages are shown below.

Resident Students
22 25 27 23 26 28 26 24 25 20
26 24 27 26 18 19 18 30 26 18
18 19 32 23 19 19 18 29 19 22

19 32 29 23 21 19 36 27 27 20
20 21 18 19 23 20 19 19 20 25
At a = 0.05, decide if there is enough evidence to reject the claim of no difference in the ages fo the two groups. Compute and use the standard deviations from the samples.
