For two samples from what are assumed to be normally distributed populations,the sample sizes and standard deviationsare n1 = 10, s1= 23.5, n2 =9, ands2 = 10.4. At the 0.10 level of significance, test the null hypothesis that the population variances are equal. Would your conclusion be different if the test had been conducted at the 0.05level ? At the 0.02 level?
