    Null Hypothesis Question - Need Help!

    Need some guidance on solving this null hypothesis problem.

    Test the claim at 1% significance level that graduates from University X and University Y experience the same salary increase after graduation.

    Univesity X
    Mean $8,000
    Standard Deviation: $1,000

    University Y
    Mean $7,000
    Standard Deviation: $1,000

    Should (could) this be done in Excel through a t test: two sample assuming equal variances?
