Besides, the result from t-test formula was 4.41 and the degree of freedom (df) was 48, whereas the t-table at 5% significant level for df=48 is 1.67722. It indicates that the value of the t-test in this research is higher than value of t-table (4.41>1.67722). So, null hypothesis (Ho) is not accepted and the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted.
