A state health web site provides information on the cost-to-charge ratio (the percentage of billed charges that are actual costs to the hospital). The cost-to-charge ratios for both inpatient and outpatient care in 2002 for a sample of six hospitals of that state follow. (Use a statistical computer package to calculate the P-value. Use μinpatientμoutpatient. Round your test statistic to two decimal places and your P-value to three decimal places.)
