Is there a significant difference in annual earnings between Japanese American men and white men? Set a = .05 Japanese White X J =22,907 Xw =24,891 sJ=11,120 sw=14.225 N J =27 N w =32 We assume: independent samples, random samples, level of measurement is interval ratio, equal population variances (you are allowed to assume this unless stated otherwise), the sampling distribution is normal Ho: /lJ-/lw=O HI: /lJ-/lwF O o~s '.
