Question

In a statistics class, students took their pulses before and after being frightened. The frightening event was having the teacher scream and run from one side of the room to the other. The pulse rates (beats per minute) of the women before and after the scream were obtained separately and are shown in the accompanying table. Treat this as though it were a random sample of female community college students. Test the hypothesis that the mean of college women's pulse rates is higher after afright, using a significance level of 0.05

Pulse before: 65, 77, 95, 92, 94, 71, 70, 82,81, 61,82 , 89, 64

pulse after: 67, 85, 96, 99,97, 77,78, 86, 84,65, 87, 95, 74

Step 1: Hypothesize

Let μbefore be the population mean number of beats per minute before the scream, and let μafter be the population mean number of beats per minute after the scream. Determine the hypotheses for this test. Choose the correct answer below.

Choose a test. Should it be a paired t-test or a two-sample t-test? Why?

Step 3: Compute to compare

Find the test statistic for this test. Use μdifference μbefore minus μafter.

t=

(Round to two decimal places as needed.)

Find the p-value for this test.

p-value

(Round to three decimal places as needed.)

Step 4: Interpret

Reject or do not reject H0.

Then write a sentence that includes "significant" or "significantly" in it. Report the sample mean pulse rate before the scream and the sample mean pulse rate after the scream.

Suppose the mean pulse rate of college students is 68 beats per
minute with a standard deviation of 11.5. You conduct a special
exercise program for 37 college students. After completing the
program, the mean pulse rate of the students was 64.4. Test the
hypothesis that the program lowered students’ pulse rates using a =
0.01.

Suppose that a students is working on a statistic project using
data on pulse rates collected from a random sample of 100 students
from her college. She finds a 95% confidence interval for mean
pulse rate to be (65.5, 71.8). Explain how each of the statement
below would indicate an improper interpretation of this
interval
c) I am 95% sure that the confidence interval for the average
pulse rate of all students at this college from 65.5 to 71.8 beats...

It has been hypothesized that the mean pulse rate for college
students is about 72 beats per minute. A sample of university
students recorded their sexes and pulse rates. Assume that the
samples are representative of all university men and women for
pulse rate measurements. The summary statistics were the
following.

A simple random sample of pulse rates of 60 women from a
normally distributed population results in a standard deviation of
11.9 beats per minute. The normal range of pulse rates of adults is
typically given as 60 to 100 beats per minute. If the range rule of
thumb is applied to that normal range, the result is a standard
deviation of 10 beats per minute. Use the sample results with a
0.05 significance level to test the claim that...
