Hello,

I have a question that I'm having a problem with. I have two samples (male and female).

Sample size: 40

Data that we're comparing:

1. Pulse Rate

Male:

- Standard Deviation = 11.29738
- Mean: 69.4

Female:

- Standard Deviation = 12.49862
- Mean: 76.3

2. Diastolic Pulse Rate

Male:

- Standard Deviation = 9.132886476
- Mean: 73.225

Female:

- Standard Deviation = 11.62642327
- Mean: 67.425

Question:

1. Perform a hypothesis to test the claim that the mean male pulse rate is the same as the

mean female pulse rate. Use alpha = 0.01.

2. Perform a hypothesis to test the claim that the mean male diastolic pulse rate is

greater than the mean female diastolic pulse rate. Use alpha = 0.01.

For each, I need to know:

- The null and alternative hypotheses
- Significance level and rejection criterion (either in terms of the p-value or the critical values)
- The calculations
- Whether to accept the null hypothesis

Thanks in advance!
