## Question:

Consider the following competing hypotheses and relevant summary statistics:

H_{0}: ????^{2}_{1 }∕ ????^{2}_{2} = 1

H_{A}: ????^{2}_{1} ∕ ????^{2}_{2} ≠ 1

Sample 1: X̅_{1} = 48.5, s^{2}_{1} = 18.7, and n_{1} = 10

Sample 2: X̅_{2} = 50.2, s^{2}_{2} =12.9, and n_{2} = 8

Assume that the two populations are normally distributed.

a. Using the p-value approach, conduct this hypothesis test at the 5% significance level.

b. Confirm your conclusions by using the critical value approach.
