levels, 9 heart patients' cholesterol levels are measured before they are given the drug. The
same 9 patients use XZR for two continuous months. After two months of continuous use, the
9 patients' cholesterol levels are measured again. The comparison of cholesterol levels before
vs. after the administration of the drug is an example of testing the difference between two

D. samples of unequal variances 55. In general, the shape of the F distribution is _________.
A. skewed right
B. skewed left

D. binomial 1831 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 56. In testing the difference between the means of two independent populations, the variances
of the two samples can be pooled if the population variances are assumed to be
____________.
A. Unequal
B. Greater than the mean
C. Sum to 1
D. Equal 57. In testing the difference between two independent population means if the variances of the
two populations are not equal the critical value of the t statistic is obtained by calculating
___________________.
A. degrees of freedom
B. the sum of the two sample sizes (n1 + n2)

order to reduce the ________________ attributable to the difference between individual
observations and other factors.
