Question

Medical researchers interested in determining the relative effectiveness of two different drug treatments on people with a chronic mental illness established two independent test groups. The first group consisted of 7 people with the illness, and the second group consisted of 12 people with the illness. The first group received treatment 1 and had a mean time until remission of 199 days, with a standard deviation of 6 days. The second group received treatment 2 and had a mean time until remission of 187 days, with a standard deviation of 9 days. Assume that the populations of times until remission for each of the two treatments are normally distributed with equal variance. Can we conclude, at the 0.01 level of significance, that the mean number of days before remission after treatment 1, μ1, is greater than the mean number of days before remission after treatment 2, μ2? Perform a one-tailed test. Then fill in the table below.

Carry your intermediate computations to at least three decimal places and round your answers as specified in the table. (If necessary, consult a list of formulas.)

Null Hypothesis: ?

Alternative Hypothesis: ?

Type of test statistic: ? (z, t, chi square, F)

The value of the test statistic: ? (round to 3 decimal places)

The P-value: ? (round to 3 decimal places)

Can we conclude that the mean number of days before remission after treatment 1 is greater than the mean number of days before remission after treatment 2?

Q1.Researchers were interested in determining the relative
effectiveness of two different brands of eye drops in alleviating
the symptoms of 'dry eye syndrome'. Forty subjects, who suffered
from 'dry eye syndrome', were randomly assigned to receive either
brand A or brand B of the eye-drops - 20 subjects to each brand.
The eyedrops were administered to each subject and the time until
symptoms returned was recorded for each subject. Based on the
information provided, which of the following statement/s is...

A medical researcher is comparing the effectiveness of two
treatments. Sample data is as follows:
Sample A: Time to recover = 8 days s = 2.5
days n = 20
Sample B: Time to recover = 11 days s = 3.5
days n = 16
Perform a hypothesis test at 95% confidence to determine whether
there is a significant difference in the time to recover between
the two treatments. Be sure to state your null and alternate
hypothesis, show your...

A study of the effectiveness of using extracts of St. John’s
Wort in treating depression was reported in the Journal of the
American Medical Association in April, 2001. Patients were
randomly divided into two groups. Of the 98 patients in group 1 who
received St. John’s Wort, 14 were in remission at the end of the
study period. Of the 102 patients in group 2 who received a
placebo, 5 were in remission at the end of the study period....

Two different simple random samples are drawn from two different
populations. The first sample consists of 20 people with 11 having
a common attribute. The second sample consists of 1800 people with
1283 of them having the same common attribute. Compare the results
from a hypothesis test of p1 =p2 (with a
0.05 significance level) and a 95% confidence interval estimate
of p1 - p2
What are the null and alternative hypotheses for the
hypothesis test?
Identify the test statistic.(Round...

A medical researcher believes that a drug changes the body's
temperature. Seven test subjects are randomly selected and the body
temperature of each is measured. The subjects are then given the
drug, and after 30 minutes, the body temperature of each is
measured again. The results are listed in the table below. Is there
enough evidence to conclude that the drug changes the body's
temperature?
Let d=(body temperature after taking drug)−(body temperature
before taking drug)d=(body temperature after taking drug)−(body
