    Hypothesis Test

    It is assumed that the life of the bulbs is normally distributed test the null hypothesis that the samples were obtained from populations with equal variance, considering $\displaystyle \alpha = 10$%, considering the following information:
    $\displaystyle n_1 = 10$ $\displaystyle n_2=8$
    $\displaystyle S_1 = 200$ $\displaystyle S_2=62500$

    You need to test that there is no difference in mean bulb life between the 2 populations

    $\displaystyle H_0: \mu_1 = \mu_2$

    $\displaystyle H_a: \mu_1 \neq \mu_2$

    Now use a t-test for difference in means.

    Are you firmiliar with this test?

    You are testing the variances for equality so you should use the variance ratio or F-test.
