If we are now testing to see if two variances are equal, as compared to where we wanted to see if the variance equaled a certain value, we use an F test instead of a Chi-square test.  So the test statistic is an F statistic  equal to s1^2/s2^2 and we compare to an F critical value found in any F chart. The decision rule is reject if F falls in the rejection region and do not reject if F is not in the rejection region.  The hypotheses for this test would be Ho: variance1 = variance2,  Ha: variance1 does not equal variance2
