do-adult-males-and-females-have-significantly-different-body-temperatures-to-answer-this-question-pa948

Do adult males and females have significantly different body temperatures? To answer this question, random samples of adult males and females were taken at a blood donor center. Summary statistics for these two samples are shown below. Use this information to conduct a significance test with a significance level of \( 0.01 \). Let \( \mu_{M} \) represent the population mean body temperature of adult males and \( \mu_{F} \) represent the population mean body temperature of adult females. Assume DF \( =97 \). What hypotheses should be tested?
What hypotheses should be tested? a) \[ H_{0}: \mu_{M}=\mu_{F} H_{1}: \mu_{M}>\mu_{F} \] b) \[ H_{0}: \mu_{M}=\mu_{F} H_{1}: \mu_{M}<\mu_{F} \] c) \[ H_{0}: \mu_{D}=0 H_{1}: \mu_{D} \neq 0 \] d) \[ H_{0}: \mu_{M}=\mu_{F} H_{1}: \mu_{M} \neq \mu_{F} \]
