Question: Given the information in Exercise 11 75 and using the 0 05

Given the information in Exercise 11.75, and using the 0.05 level of significance in comparing the sample standard deviations, were we justified in assuming that the population standard deviations were equal? Would your conclusion change if the standard deviation of the estimates received by Emily had been $35?
In exercise 11.75
Suspecting that television repair shops tend to charge women more than they do men, Emily disconnected the speaker wire on her portable television and took it to a sample of 12 shops. She was given repair estimates that averaged $85, with a standard deviation of $28. Her friend John, taking the same set to another sample of 9 shops, was provided with an average estimate of $65, with a standard deviation of $21.
