The lengths of a random sample of 120 limpets taken from the upper shore of a beach hada mean of 4.97 cm and a standard deviation of 0.42 cm. The lengths of a second randomsample of 150 limpets taken from the lower shore of the same beach had a mean of5.05 cm and a standard deviation of 0.67 cm.

(a) Test, using a 5% level of significance, whether or not the mean length of limpets fromthe upper shore is less than the mean length of limpets from the lower shore. Stateyour hypotheses clearly.
