Statistical test to verify if a population has a average of k times another

by Eduardo Cesar N. Coutinho   Last Updated October 19, 2019 21:19 PM - source

Consider the situation where there are 2 distributions with unknown expected values $\mu_1$ and $\mu_2$.

We have samples $S_1 = \{x_1, x_2, ..., x_n\}$ and $S_2 = \{y_1, y_2, ..., y_n\}$.

We would like to use a statistical test under the null hypothesis: $\mu_1 = k \times \mu_2$.

Do you know what kind of test should we use?
