Theresa AdigwuGrand Canyon UniversityHLT-362VExercise 3111/4/121.The two groups whose results are reflected by the t ratios in table 2 and 3 are the cardiovascular risk factors and the Health behaviors.2.The t ratio in table 2 which represents the greatest relative or standardized difference between the pretest and the 3 months outcomes is the triglyceride. Yes, the t ratio is statistically significant because the difference in mean at pretest and 3 months is 164.2-150.4 = 13.8 which is a high t pair.3.The t ratio listed in table 3 that represents the smallest relative difference between the pretest and 3 months is exercise which is -7.75. This t ratio is statistically insignificant because it’s so small. 4.The assumptions for conducting a t-test for dependent groups in a study are 1. The distribution of scores is normal or approximately normally distributed2. The dependent variables or variable are / is measured at interval or ratio levels.
