Using a 0.01 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the variances of the age of students at the western school and at the eastern school? b. Discuss the practical implications of the test performed in (a). Address, specifically, the impact equal (or unequal) variances in age has on teaching an undergraduate information systems course. c. To test for a difference in the mean age of students, is it most appropriate to use the pooled-variance t test or the separate-variance t test?
