Name: Jordan Witte Module 4 Homework Assignment 1. Determine whether the samples are independent or dependent. The effectiveness of a new headache medicine is tested by measuring the amount of time before the headache is cured for patients who use the medicine and another group of patients who use a placebo drug. Explain. Solution: The two samples are independent as the data being collected are unrelated. They are two different test groups comparing a medicine and a placebo drug effect. Instructor Comments: 2. Determine whether the samples are independent or dependent. The effectiveness of a headache medicine is tested by measuring the intensity of a headache in patients before and after drug treatment. The data consist of before and after intensities for each patient. Explain. Solution: The two samples are dependent because the data collected are paired and related between the two groups. They are using the same medicine of the same people before and after.

    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.
