Question

A food manufacturer claims that eating its new cereal as part of a daily diet lowers total blood cholesterol levels. The table shows the total blood cholesterol levels (in milligrams per deciliter of blood) of seven patients before eating the cereal and after one year of eating the cereal as part of their diets. Use technology to test the mean difference. Assume the samples are random and dependent, and the population is normally distributed. At alphaequals0.05, can you conclude that the new cereal lowers total blood cholesterol levels?

A. Upper H 0: mu Subscript dgreater than or equals0 Upper H Subscript Upper A: mu Subscript dless than0 B. Upper H 0: mu Subscript dless than or equals0 Upper H Subscript Upper A: mu Subscript dgreater than0 C. Upper H 0: mu Subscript dnot equals0 Upper H Subscript Upper A: mu Subscript dequals0 D. Upper H 0: mu Subscript dequals0 Upper H Subscript Upper A: mu Subscript dnot equals0 Calculate the standardized test statistic. tequals nothing (Round to three decimal places as needed.) Calculate the P-value. P-valueequals nothing (Round to four decimal places as needed.) State the conclusion. ▼ Reject Fail to reject Upper H 0. There ▼ is not is sufficient evidence to support the claim that the new cereal lowers total blood cholesterol levels. Click to select your answer(s).

Answer #1

Answer)

First, we need to estimate the mean and standard deviation for before and after

Before:

u1 = 238.5714

s1 = 23.0424

n1 = 7

After :

u2 = 232.8571

S2 = 22.2743

n2 = 7

Null hypothesis : Ho : d<0

Alternate hypothesis : Ha : d > 0

Test statistics = (u1-u2)/standard error

Standard error = √{(s1^2/n1)+(s2^2/n2)}

Test statistics = 0.472

Degrees of freedom is given by smaller of n1-1, n2-1

Df = 6

For df 6 and test statistics of 0.472

From t distribution

P-value is = 0.326802

As the obtained p-value is greater than the given significance level of 0.05

We fail to reject the null hypothesis Ho so we do not have enough evidence to support the claim

Listed below are ages of actresses and actors at the time that
they won an award for the categories of Best Actress and Best
Actor. Use the sample data to test for a difference between the
ages of actresses and actors when they win the award. Use a 0.05
significance level. Assume that the paired sample data is a simple
random sample and that the differences have a distribution that is
approximately normal. ?Actress's age 20 26 20 49 26...

In an experiment, 18 babies were asked to watch a climber
attempt to ascend a hill. On two occasions, the baby witnesses the
climber fail to make the climb. Then, the baby witnesses either a
helper toy push the climber up the hill, or a hinderer toy
preventing the climber from making the ascent. The toys were shown
to each baby in a random fashion. A second part of this experiment
showed the climber approach the helper toy, which is...

A researcher claims that a post-lunch nap decreases the amount
of time it takes males to sprint 20 meters after a night with only
4 hours of sleep. The table shows the amounts of time (in seconds)
it took for 10 males to sprint 20 meters after a night with only 4
hours of sleep when they did not take a post-lunch nap and when
they did take a post-lunch nap. At

A market analyst wants to know if the new website he designed is
showing increased page views per visit. A customer is randomly sent
to one of two different websites, offering the same products, but
with different designs. The accompanying table shows the data from
five randomly chosen customers from each website. Test the null
hypothesis that the mean number of page visits is the same for the
two websites. Assume that the data come from a population that is...

A city wants to know if a new advertising campaign to make
citizens aware of the dangers of driving after drinking has been
effective. The accompanying table shows the number of drivers who
have been stopped with more alcohol in their systems than the law
allows for each day of the week in the week before and the week a
month after the campaign starts. Assume that the data from each
population is Normally distributed. Complete parts a through i...
