Question

A study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of a diet program in reducing weight of obeys people. Eight randomly selected patients were put on this diet and the amount of weight losses (in pounds) were recorded. Suppose the sample mean and the sample standard deviation of weight losses were 38 and 4.598136 pounds, respectively. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the average weight loss and based on the confidence interval constructed determine if you would expect to see an average weight loss of 35 pounds. (Assume that samples were taken independently from a normal distribution.)

Group of answer choices

90% CI: (34.91932, 41.08068), an average weight loss of 35 pounds is expected to see.

90% CI: (36.91082, 39.08918), an average weight loss of 35 pounds is expected to see.

90% CI: (36.91082, 39.08918), an average weight loss of 35 pounds is not expected to see.

90% CI: (34.91932, 41.08068), an average weight loss of 35 pounds is not expected to see.

90% CI: (35.69965, 41.08068), an average weight loss of 35 pounds is not expected to see.

90% CI: (35.69965, 41.08068), an average weight loss of 35 pounds is expected to see.

Answer #1

**90% CI:
(34.91932, 41.08068), an average weight loss of 35 pounds is
expected to see.**

[ *explanation*:-

given data are:-

sample mean () = 38

sample sd (s) = 4.598136

sample size (n) = 8

df = (n-1) = (8-1) = 7

*t critical value for
alpha=0.10,df=7,both tailed test be:-*

[ using t distribution table ]

**the 90% confidence
interval for the average weight loss is:-**

* decision*:-

**as 35 is
included in the 90 % confidence interval, we may expect an
average we would expect an average weight loss of 35 pounds.

A study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of a diet
program in reducing weight of obeys people. Eight randomly selected
patients were put on this diet and the amount of weight losses (in
pounds) were recorded. Suppose the sample mean and the sample
standard deviation of weight losses were 36 and 5.291503 pounds,
respectively. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the average
weight loss and based on the confidence interval constructed
determine if you would expect to see an...

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...

An advertisement for a diet program described a study performed
on 70 obese adults. Each person in the study was weighed before
beginning the diet and then 5 weeks after starting the diet. The
difference was recordeddasha positive value indicates a person lost
weight on the diet while a negative value indicates the person
gained weight while on the diet. The advertisement gave a 95%
confidence interval for the average weight change while on the
diet: (minus1,5) lbs. The advertisement...

Here we study the effectiveness of two dieting methods. Method 1
is a diet high in protein, fiber, and fat but low in carbohydrates.
Method 2 is a diet low in fat but high in fiber and carbohydrates.
After one year, a sample of participants from each diet method were
checked for the amount of weight lost. The 99% confidence intervals
for the mean weight loss of each plan are given below.
Method 1: 8.61 < μ
< 9.59
Method 2: 6.19...

A study was conducted to measure the effectiveness of hypnotism
in reducing pain. The measurements are centimeters on a pain scale
before and after hypnosis. Assume that the paired sample data are
simple random samples and that the differences have a distribution
that is approximately normal. Construct a 95% confidence interval
for the mean of the
"beforeminus−after"
differences. Does hypnotism appear to be effective in reducing
pain?
