Suppose that the Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture wants to develop plants that have an increased resistance to a particular disease. Two treatments are proposed and a random sample of 6 plants produces the following data. (Higher numbers correspond to greater resistance.) Treatment #1: 12 14 19 Treatment #2: 4 7 13 Suppose that μ 1 denotes the true mean of plants receiving treatment #1 and that μ 2 denotes the true mean of plants receiving treatment #2. Consider testing the hypotheses H : μ 1 = μ 2 vs. H A : μ 1 > μ 2 at the α = 0 . 15 significance level. (a) Based on the two-sample t test, is there significant evidence to reject H ? (b) Based on the permutation test, is there significant evidence to reject H ? (c) Based on the Wilcoxon rank-sum test, is there significant evidence to reject H ?...
