Comparison of GPA for randomly chosen college juniors and seniors:

x⎯⎯1x1 = 4.75, s1 = .20, n1 = 15, x⎯⎯2x2 = 5.18, s2 = .30, n2 = 15, α = .025, left-tailed test.

(Negative values should be indicated by a minus sign. Round down your d.f. answer to the nearest whole number and other answers to 4 decimal places. Do not use "quick" rules for degrees of freedom.)
