The university datacenter has two main computers. The center wants to examine whether computer 1 is receiving tasks which require comparable processing time to those of computer 2. A random sampleof processing times from computer 1 showed a meanof seconds with a standard deviationof seconds, while a random sample of processing times from computer 2 (chosen independently of those for computer 1) showed a mean of seconds with a standard deviation of seconds. Assume that the populations of processing times are normally distributed for each of the two computers, and that the variances are equal. Can we conclude, at the level of significance, that the mean processing time of computer 1, , is greater than the mean processing time of computer 2, ?
