# (solution) 1. The weights of a random sample of 121 women between the ages

1. The weights of a random sample of 121 women between the ages of 25 and
34 had a standard deviation of 28 pounds. The weights of 121 women
between the ages of 55 and 64 had a standard deviation 21 pounds. Test the
claim that the older women are from a population with a standard deviation
less than that for women in the 25 to 34 age group. Use er women are from
a population with a standard deviation less than that for women in the 25 to
34 age group. Use ? = 0.05.
