Answer #1

*Soln*

a)

One Sample t test

b)

Population: Orange Grove Elementary children of comparative age

Sample: Orange Grove Elementary children of comparative age
Administrators

c)

From the data, we calculate the mean and standard deviation.

Mean (X) = Sum of Values /n = 24.55

and

Std Dev(s) = 6.73

n = 20

*Null and Alternate
Hypothesis*

H_{0}: µ = 22

H_{a}: µ > 22

*Test Statistic*

t = (X- µ_{0})/(s/n^{1/2}) = 1.69

p-value = TDIST(1.69,20-1,1) = 0.053

*Result*

Since the p-value is greater than 0.05, we fail to reject the null hypothesis

*Conclusion*

average reading comprehension score is 22

d)

Effect Size = (X- µ_{0})/s = 0.38

trivial effect small effect

e)

Orange Grove Elementary reading program does not have a significant effect.

Hospital administrators at a local hospital are interested in
quality of care. As such, they ask a random sample of patients that
have used the hospital's health care services to fill out a
questionnaire. The questionnaire has questions about the patient's
worry (negative, positive), the hospital staff's communication
skills (low, medium, high), and satisfaction with medical care. The
administrators are interested in how patient's worry and their
assessment of the hospital staff's communication impact their

A sample obese adult males were randomly divided into two groups
in a lifestyle change program. In the experimental group,
participants were involved in a vigorous 20-minute-per-day exercise
program and also given instructions on the importance of diet. The
control group only received the diet instructions. The hospital
administrators predict that exercise plus diet instruction will
reduce LDL cholesterol levels. Below are the LDL cholesterol data
after two months in the program. What can be concluded with α =
0.10?...
