Question

*Round any numerical answers to 3 decimal places.*

**1.) A weight loss study measures each participant’s
weight before the study and then 12 weeks into the study. A sample
of 31 participants enrolled in the study and the mean difference in
their weights (computed before – after) was found to be 4.1 pounds
with a standard deviation of 3.2 pounds. In Minitab Express,
conduct a paired means t-test to determine if there is evidence
that the participants on average lost weight during the 12 weeks.
Use the five-step hypothesis testing procedure and remember to
include all relevant Minitab Express output.**

A. Write the hypotheses for the above test.

B. Calculate the test statistic.

C. Determine the p-value.

D. Decide between the null and the alternative hypotheses.

E. State a “real world” conclusion.
