(b) t = [0.90-0.85]/sqrt(0.02 2 +0.02 2 ) = 0.05/sqrt(0.0008) = 0.05/0.0283 = 1.77 < 1.96. Do not reject H 0 : no difference. Conclude that the difference is not statistically significant at 5%. (c) Cost per QALY = 254/0.124 = $2,048. This is very low. The intervention is cost-effective. 3.(a)-(c) See over. 4.(a) Produce where Social MB = Social MC ==> 1,000,000 – 10Q = 100 ==> Q = 99,990 cows tested. (b) Social MC = Private MC + cost to others = 3 + 1 = 4. Produce where MB = Social MC ==> 10 – 0.1Q = 4 ==> 0.1Q = 6 ==> Q = 60 million packets. (c)
