    Smile Statistics Problems

    Do athletes in different sports vary in terms of intelligence? Below are reported College Board scores of random samples of college basketball and football players. Is there a significant difference? Use a 1% level of significance. What is the implication of the test result to the entire varsity program?

    Sample 1: Basketball Players
    Mean - 460
    Standard Deviation - 92
    Sample Size - 102

    Sample 2: Football Players
    Mean - 442
    Standard Deviation - 57
    Sample Size - 117

    thanks a lot!

    H_{0}: {\mu}_{1}={\mu}_{2}

    H_{a}: {\mu}_{1}\neq {\mu}_{2}

    Test stat = 1.7104

    Critical value = +/- 2.5758

    p value = .0903

    Now, from this, do you reject or not reject the null hypothesis?.

    I have a nice Excel macro I run these through. I do not use those cumbersome formulae. You will have to do that and check your results with what I have above.
