To compare the performance of students in private and public schools, samples of reading test scores were collected from two groups of students. In a sample of 106 private-school students the sample mean was 282 with a standard deviation of 46 and in a sample of 151 public-school students, the sample mean was 265 with a standard deviation of 68.

b) What is the p-value?
