Question

- A study of the effect of caffeine on muscle metabolism used 24 male volunteers who each underwent arm exercise tests. 12 of the men were randomly selected to take a capsule containing pure caffeine one hour before the test. The other men received a placebo capsule. During each exercise the subject's respiratory exchange ratio (RER) was measured. (RER is the ratio of CO2 produced to O2 consumed and is an indicator of whether energy is being obtained from carbohydrates or fats). The question of interest to the experimenter was whether, on average, caffeine changes RER. Data is in:

**Provide descriptive statistics (mean, SD, median and interquartile) for each group**.**Construct a hypothesis test that detect whether there is difference in RER between two groups at .05 significant level (show steps)****Construct a hypothesis test that detect whether Caffeine reduces RER compared to placebo at .05 significant level (show steps)**

1. A city official claims that the proportion of all commuters
who are in favor of an expanded public transportation system is
50%. A newspaper conducts a survey to determine whether this
proportion is different from 50%. Out of 225 randomly chosen
commuters, the survey finds that 90 of them reply yes when asked if
they support an expanded public transportation system. Test the
official’s claim at α = 0.05.

Q) Over the past few years the percentage of students who leave
Lakeland College at the end of the first year has increased. Last
year Lakeland started a voluntary one-week orientation program to
help first-year students adjust to campus life. If Lakeland is able
to show that the orientation program has a positive effect on
retention, they will consider making the program a requirement for
all first-year students. Lakeland’s administration also suspects
that students with lower GPAs have a higher...

Researchers in a 2015 study by Flannery et al. sought to
estimate the effectiveness of the seasonal influenza vaccine in
preventing acute respiratory infection (ARI). A total of 507
subjects from Texas who showed symptoms of ARI were recruited for
this study. The data provided show the result of each subject's
test for influenza.
