Problem 13E

In an experiment to test the effectiveness of a new sleeping aid, a sample of 12 patients took the new drug, and a sample of 14 patients took a commonly used drug. Of the patients taking the new drug, the average time to fall asleep was 27.3 minutes with a standard deviation of 5.2 minutes, and for the patients taking the commonly used drug the average time was 32.7 minutes with a standard deviation of 4.1 minutes. Can you conclude that the mean time to sleep is less for the new drug?
