Unformatted text preview: Hypothesis Testing for the Difference between two Population Means Prof. M.Vaisfeld Apr 25'10 if the null hypothesis will be rejected as result of testing usually should be placed (see handouts # 15, 15a and the illustrative Fig. 7.3.1 on pg. 236 ) 7.3.1 Researchers wish to know if the data they have collected provide sufficient evidence syndrome and normal individuals. The data consists of serum uric acid readings on 12 individuals with Down's syndrome and 15 normal individuals. The sample means are for the Down's syndrome population and 1.5 for the normal population. Let = 0.05.

Solving the problems remember that what we hope or expect to be able to conclude in the alternative hypothesis H A . Formulate at first the alternative hypothesis H A and only then the null hypothesis H which should be complementary to H A . Then find a block of cells that corresponds to your hypotheses H and H A and enter the data only in the data entry cells (of that block) belonging to Bcolumn. TWOSided Hypothesis Test of type of the Example 7.3.1 on pg. 235 of Biostatistics book H : 1 2 = ( 1 2 ) 0 , H A : 1 2 ( 1 2 ) to indicate a difference in mean serum uric acid levels between individuals with Down's x mean_1 * = 4.5 mg/100 ml and x mean_2 * = 3.4 mg/100 ml, respectively.
