# Module 23 – Hypothesis Test for a Difference in Two Population Means (5 of 7 discussion 1) – Mod 23 Group 1

I’m trying to study for my Statistics course and I need some help to understand this question.

NOTE: you need to use Statcrunch

### Context

A student conducted a study of sleep habits at a large state university. His hypothesis is that undergraduates will party more and sleep less than graduate students. He surveyed random samples of 75 undergraduate students and 50 graduate students. Subjects reported the hours they sleep in a typical night.

For this hypothesis test, he defined the population means as follows:

• (mu_1) is the mean number of hours undergraduate students sleep in a typical night.
• (mu_2) is the mean number of hours graduate students sleep in a typical night.

### Variables

Hours: typical number of hours a student sleeps each night

Program is the explanatory variable, and the data is categorical. Hours is the response variable, and the data is quantitative.

### Prompt

1. State the null and alternative hypotheses. Include a clear description of the populations and the variable.
2. Explain why we can safely use the two-sample T-test in this case.
3. Use StatCrunch to carry out the test. (directions)
Copy and paste the content of in the StatCrunch output window (text and the table) in your initial post.
4. State a conclusion in the context of this problem.
