Foot-Length: It has been claimed that, on average, right-handed people have a left foot that is larger than the right foot. Here we test this claim on a sample of 10 right-handed adults. The table below gives the left and right foot measurements in millimeters (mm). Test the claim at the 0.05 significance level. You may assume the sample of differences comes from a normally distributed population.

 Person Left Foot (x) Right Foot (y) difference (d = x − y) 1 274 274 0 2 271 269 2 3 261 263 -2 4 257 256 1 5 263 260 3 6 275 275 0 7 276 272 4 8 260 258 2 9 275 274 1 10 257 255 2 Mean 266.90 265.60 1.30 s 7.99 8.04 1.70

If you are using software, you should be able copy and paste the data directly into your software program.

(a) The claim is that the mean difference is positive (μd > 0). What type of test is this?

This is a two-tailed test.This is a left-tailed test.     This is a right-tailed test.

(b) What is the test statistic? Round your answer to 2 decimal places.
td=
To account for hand calculations -vs- software, your answer must be within 0.01 of the true answer.

(c) Use software to get the P-value of the test statistic. Round to 4 decimal places.
P-value =

(d) What is the conclusion regarding the null hypothesis?

reject H0

fail to reject H0

(e) Choose the appropriate concluding statement.

The data supports the claim that, on average, right-handed people have a left foot that is larger than the right foot.

There is not enough data to support the claim that, on average, right-handed people have a left foot that is larger than the right foot.

We reject the claim that, on average, right-handed people have a left foot that is larger than the right foot.

We have proven that, on average, right-handed people have a left foot that is larger than the right foot.

WHAT SOFTWARE DID YOU USE TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM? MAY HELP ME WITH MY OTHER PROBLEMS.

(Dear student you can use software like Excel it is very easy to use follow the path:- Data – Data analysis - t test: paired two sample for means)
