The photography department of a fashion magazine needs to choose a camera. Of the two models the department is considering, one is made by Nikon and one by Minolta. The department contracts with an agency to determine if one of the two models gets a higher average performance rating by professional photographers, or whether the average performance ratings of these two cameras are not statistically different. The agency asks 60 different professional photographers to rate one of the cameras (30 photographers rate each model). The ratings are on a scale of 1 to 10. The average sample rating for Nikon is 8.5, and the sample standard deviation is 2.1. For the Minolta sample, the average sample rating is 7.8, and the standard deviation is 1.8. Is there a difference between the average population ratings of the two cameras? If so, which one is rated higher?
