Question

A group of five individuals with high blood pressure were given a new drug that was designed to lower blood pressure. Systolic blood pressure was measured before and after treatment for each individual. The mean and standard deviation for the before treatment were 168.6 and 9.3, respectively. The mean and standard deviation for the after treatment were 137.2 and 7.4. respectively. The 90% confidence for the mean reduction in systolic blood pressure is nearly ?

When subjects were treated with a drug, their systolic blood
pressure readings (in mm Hg) were measured before and after the
drug was taken. Results are given in the table below. Assume that
the paired sample data is a simple random sample and that the
differences have a distribution that is approximately normal. Using
a0.01 significance level, is there sufficient evidence to support
the claim that the drug is effective in lowering systolic blood
pressure?

The effectiveness of a blood-pressure drug is being
investigated. An experimenter finds that, on average, the reduction
in systolic blood pressure is 69.6 for a sample of size 22 and
standard deviation 6.4. Estimate how much the drug will lower a
typical patient's systolic blood pressure (using a 90% confidence
level). Assume the data is from a normally distributed
population.
Enter your answer as a tri-linear inequality accurate to three
decimal places.

The effectiveness of a blood-pressure drug is being
investigated. An experimenter finds that, on average, the reduction
in systolic blood pressure is 16.4 for a sample of size 22 and
standard deviation 10.9. Estimate how much the drug will lower a
typical patient's systolic blood pressure (using a 90% confidence
level). Assume the data is from a normally distributed
population.
Enter your answer as a tri-linear inequality accurate to three

A pharmaceutical company claims that its new drug reduces
systolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure (in
millimeters of mercury) for nine patients before taking the new
drug and 22 hours after taking the drug are shown in the table
below. Using this data, find the 90%90% confidence interval for the
true difference in blood pressure for each patient after taking the
new drug. Assume that the blood pressures are normally distributed
for the population of patients both before and...
