They took a random sample of toothbrushes fromeach company. Each toothbrush was charged overnight and the number of hours of use beforeneeding to be recharged was recorded. The data are shown in the table. Assume normaldistributions. Do these samples indicate that there is a difference in the mean operating times between cordlesstoothbrushes manufactured by the two companies?Sample sizeCompany 1n1 18Company 2n2 15Page 6 of 7Sample meanx1 119 . 7×2 120. 6Sample standard deviation1 1. 742 1. 7222.
