(a) H : μ x ≥30 H A : μ x <30 (b) 1tailed 1sample ttest (c) t = 0.4657, df = 12, P = 0.3249 (d) At all levels of alpha, p> α so we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that this species does not maintain a coelomic calcium concentration less than that of their environment. 2. (a) H : μ x =24.3 H A : μ x ≠24.3 (b) 2tailed, 1sample ttest (c) t = 2.7128, df = 24, P = 0.01215 (d) For α = 0.1 and 0.05, p< α so we reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the crabs maintain a body temperature different than air. For α = 0.01 and 0.001, p> α so we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the crabs maintain a body temperature the same as the air. 3. (a) H : μ x =29.5 H A : μ x ≠29.5 (b) 2tailed, 1sample ttest (c) t = 2.2859, df = 13, P = 0.03968 (d) For α =0.1 and 0.05, p< α so we ; reject the null hypothesis and conclude that average human menstrual cycle does not equal a lunar month. For α =0.01 and 0.001, p> α so we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the average human menstrual cycle equals a lunar month. 4. (a) H : μ x ≤45 H A : μ x > 45 (b)1tailed, 1sample ttest (c) t = 0.3665, df = 7, P = 0.3624 (d) For α =0.1, 0.05, 0.01, and 0.001, p> α so we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the mean dissolving time is less than or equal to 45 seconds. 5. (a) H : μ x ≥45 H A : μ x < 45 (b) 1tailed, 1sample ttest (c) t = 0.3665, df = 7, P = 0.6376 (d) For α =0.1, 0.05, 0.01, and 0.001, p> α so we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the mean dissolving time greater than or equal to 45 seconds....
