H 524: Problem Set 4 Solutions Chapter 10 10a . H 0 = mean WBC count among persons infected with E. canis is ≥7250/mm 3 H a = mean WBC count among persons infected with E. canis is < 7250/mm 3 Note: it’s fine if you wrote Ho: mean WBC count among persons infected with E. canis is =7250/mm 3 10b.

We conclude that mean WBC among those infected with E. Canis is less than 7250/ mm 3 , the mean of the general population. 11. Stata command: ttesti 58 25 2.7 24 11a and 11b .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
