If anyone can help me answer this question it would be gratefully appreciated. I have been trying to do practice hypothesis testing questions but I do not understand how to get the t critical. I understand how to extract the information from the question and then how to solve for the degree of freedom [n1+n22], but i do not understand how the t critical is derived from that. Someone please explain this. I have provided the example that I am speaking about in the images attached.

Also, what is the reason that alpha is 0.05?
