Question

**Can someone please explain the last three parts of this
question parts 7-9.**

A cholesterol level over 200 is considered high. The manufacturers of a certain brand of cereal are interested in whether eating their cereal for breakfast daily will result in a decrease in cholesterol levels for people with high cholesterol. They randomly select ten people with high cholesterol to participate in the study. Each subject eats the cereal every morning for a month. The cholesterol levels of each subject are measured before and after the study. The results are shown in the table below.

Person 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Cholesterol before study 210 245 230 215 220 279 240 238 225 247

Cholesterol after study 200 220 235 205 195 239 218 219 226 233

1. What type of data are these?

2. Calculate the mean difference in cholesterol. On average, did the cholesterol levels increase or decrease?

3. Calculate the standard deviation of the differences in cholesterol.

4. You want to calculate a 95% confidence interval for the difference in cholesterol for the population (assume cholesterol levels follow a normal distribution so the normality requirement is met). What is the appropriate critical value to use in this case?

5. What is the 95% CI for the difference in cholesterol for an individual in the population to 1 decimal place for each limit. (Note: you may assume that the absolute value of the critical value is approximately 2 for the calculation in this part).

6. Conduct an hypothesis test at the 2.5% significance level to determine if the there was a significant decrease in average cholesterol for the participants in this study (assume cholesterol levels follow a normal distribution so the normality requirement is met). What are your null and alternative hypothesis?

7. You want to conduct an hypothesis test at the 2.5% significance level to determine if the there was a significant decrease in cholesterol for the participants in this study (assume cholesterol levels follow a normal distribution so the normality requirement is met). What is the value of the test statistic to one decimal place?

8. For your hypothesis test from the last question, what is your conclusion? (Note: you may assume that the absolute value of the critical value is approximately 2 for the calculation in this part)

9. This study did not meet the requirements of an experiment, so it was simply an observational study. Which requirements of an experiment were not met?

10. In a study to investigate the effect of diet on
reducing cholesterol levels, a random sample 15
subjects known to have high cholesterol had their
cholesterol measured at the beginning of the study and again after
6 months on a special diet. The results are below. Suppose that you
could assume that the differences in cholesterol are a simple
random sample from normal population. d = 8 and so = 16 [d=before -
after]
a) Perform the test if...

Hi can someone please actually EXPLAIN how to do this? I'm
really confused on how to get the answers
Cholesterol is a type of fat found in the blood. It is measured
as a concentration: the number of milligrams of cholesterol found
per deciliter of blood (mg/dL). A high level of total cholesterol
in the bloodstream increases risk for heart disease. For this
problem, assume cholesterol in men and women follows a normal
distribution, and that “adult man” and “adult...

Previous studies have shown that playing video games can
increase visual perception abilities on tasks presented in the
gaming zone of the screen (within 5 degrees of the center). A
graduate student is interested in whether playing video games
increases peripheral visual perception abilities or decreases
attention to peripheral regions because of focus on the gaming
zone. For his study, he selects a random sample of 64 adults. The
subjects complete...

Question 21
Suppose a health insurance company is interested in carrying out
an investigation as to the annual expenditures per household on
their healthcare costs. In order to most accurately report their
figures, the company decides to ensure “virtual certainty” about
their estimates by using a Z value of 3.0 for their calculations.
The company conducts a SRS of 843 households and determines the
sample average household expenditures on healthcare is
$43,257.00.
A) Assume the company uses a σ=$879.00. Calculate...

Question 6
An investigator is looking at the relationship between
periodontal disease and the onset of hypertension. Suppose the
investigator decides to look at height as a variable that may
confound the relationship between exposure and case status in his
study. After collecting information about the height of each
participant, he assembles a database that approximates height with
the normal distribution.
A) Assuming the mean of the distribution is 176.2 cm with a
standard deviation of 17.5 cm, what are...
