28.A bank is investigating ways to entice customers to charge more on their credit cards. (Banks earn a fee from the merchant on each purchase, and hope to collect interest from the customers as well). A bank selects a random group of customers who are told their “cash back” will increase from 1% to 2% for all charges above a certain dollar amount each month. Of the 500 customers who were told the increase applied to charges above \$1000 each month, the average increase in spending was \$527 with standard deviation \$225. Of the 500 customers who were told the increase applied to charges above \$2000 each month, the average increase in spending was \$439 with standard deviation \$189. When testing whether or not the increases in spending are different, the test is significant at
a. 5%
