Question

The NIH wants to compare the mean weight loss for five different diets. They measure the weight loss (in pounds) of 5 men assigned to each of the diets for one month. The resulting data set is below.

Pounds | Diet |

1.7 | 1 |

0.7 | 1 |

0.8 | 1 |

-0.6 | 1 |

-0.1 | 1 |

-1.2 | 2 |

-1.6 | 2 |

1.5 | 2 |

-1 | 2 |

0.6 | 2 |

0.8 | 3 |

-2.1 | 3 |

2.4 | 3 |

0.1 | 3 |

-0.9 | 4 |

-3.3 | 4 |

-0.8 | 5 |

-3.2 | 5 |

b) What is the F statistic for the ANOVA? Give your answer to at least three decimal places.

c) Using a 0.01 level of significance, what is the critical point that one would compare to the F statistic in order to make a conclusion? Give your answer to three decimal places.

d) What is the P-value from the ANOVA? Give your answer to four decimal places.

e) What is the proper conclusion for NIH in this case?

-Fail to reject the claim that all diets are equivalent in terms of mean weight loss because the F statistic is larger than the critical point.

-Fail to reject the claim that all diets are equivalent in terms of mean weight loss because the F statistic is smaller than the critical point.

-Reject the claim that all diets are equivalent in terms of mean weight loss because the F statistic is larger than the critical point.

-Diet 5 has the largest mean weight loss because the F statistic is larger than the critical point.

-Diet 4 has the largest mean weight loss because the F statistic is larger than the critical point.

Answer #1

hypothesis to be tested:

H0: all diets are equivalent in terms of mean weight loss

H1: atleast one diet differs in terms of mean weight loss

b) F-statistics value : 3.26835

c) Fcritical = 4.43 with df (4,20)

d) p-value = 0.032387

e) as p-val < 0.01, the result is not significant i.e. we reject the null hypothesis.

Hence we conclude that, we fail to reject the claim that all diets are equivalent in terms of mean weight loss because the F statistics is smaller than the critical value.

Are low-fat diets or low-carb diets more effective for weight
loss? A sample of 70 subjects went on a low-carbohydrate diet for
six months. At the end of that time, the sample mean weight loss
was 10.5 pounds with a sample standard deviation of 7.09 pounds. A
second sample of 76 subjects went on a low-fat diet. Their sample
mean weight loss was 18.0 with a standard deviation of 7.26. Can
you conclude that their was no difference in the...

A study was conducted in order to compare the weight loss for
two diet plans, Plan A and Plan B. Two hundred dieters were
randomly selected. Of this sample 100 were placed on the Plan A
diet and the remaining 100 were assigned to the Plan B diet. After
the dieters were on the diet for 2 months the average weight loss
and sample standard deviation of the weight losses were recorded.
For the Plan A group there was an...

With all the fad diets advertised on TV, a researcher wanted to
know if there was a significant difference in weight loss depending
on which new fad diet you were on. Over the course of 2 weeks, a
total of 12 male volunteers who weighed the same and had similar
lifestyles were broken up into 3 groups: Diet 1, Diet 2, and Diet
3. Conduct an ANOVA on the following table with alpha = 0.5 to
determine if at least...

10-12. A diet center claims that it has the most effective
weight loss program in the region. Its advertisements say,
“Participants in our program lose more than 2 pounds within a
month.” Six clients of this program are weighed on the first day of
the diet and then one month later. Let the difference be defined as
Weight on First Day of Diet minus Weight One Month Later.
(You may find it useful to reference the appropriate
table: z table...

A 1948 study in Biometrika investigated the effects of
several different diets on the weight of chickens. In this study,
chickens were randomly assigned to one of several different groups,
and each group of chickens received a different type of feed. The
data provided represent a subset of data from this study and show
the weights (in grams) of chickens receiving the casein, linseed,
and sunflower feeds.

A diet center claims that it has the most effective weight loss
program in the region. Its advertisements say, “Participants in our
program lose more than 7 pounds within a month.” Six clients of
this program are weighed on the first day of the diet and then one

of Diet minus Weight One Month Later. (You may find it useful to

(Round all intermediate calculations to at least 4
decimal places.)
An advertisement for a popular weight loss clinic suggests that
participants in its new diet program lose, on average, more than 9
pounds. A consumer activist decides to test the authenticity of the
claim. She follows the progress of 17 women who recently joined the
weight reduction program. She calculates the mean weight loss of
these participants as 10.6 pounds with a standard deviation of 2.7
pounds. Use Table 2....

The efficacy of salt-free diets for controlling high blood
pressure is studied for a sample of 8 patients.
Each has their diastolic blood pressure measured before going on
the diet and after. The data appear below:
patient: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
sample 1- Before: 93 106 90 93 102 95 88 110
sample 2- After: 92 102 89 92 101 96 87 105
Assume the differences in blood pressure fit a normal
distribution.
Use the matched pairs...

A cohort study is conducted to assess the effectiveness of a
4-week weight-loss intervention program among overweight men. Sixty
participants were randomized into two groups. Group 1 worked with a
personal trainer to come up with a physical activity regimen that
would best fit their lifestyle, while Group 2 worked with a
dietician to co-design a diet program to which the men would most
likely adhere. Mean BMI was assessed for each group at the end of
the 4 weeks....
