The official conducts a two-sample t-test to determine whether these data provide significant evidence that students at University 1 drink more than students at University 2. The test statistic is t = 2.64 with a P-value 0.005. Which of the following is an appropriate conclusion? The samples provide significant evidence that students at University 1 drink more than students at University 2. The samples do not provide statistically significant evidence. We can not use the t-test in this case because the variables (number of drinks) are likely skewed to the right at each university. Good Job! Since students were randomized to two different groups the data obtained from this study should be analyzed using the two (independent) samples t-test. !

Question 3 of 5 Question 4 of 5 In a study of the impact of smoking on birth weight, researchers analyze birth weights (in grams) for babies born to 189 women who gave birth in 1989 at a hospital in Massachusetts. In the group, 74 of the women were categorized as “smokers” and 115 as “non-smokers.” The difference in the two sample mean birth weights (non-smokers minus smokers) is 281.7 grams and the 95% confidence interval is (76.5, 486.9) Which gives the best interpretation of what we can conclude about the impact of smoking on birth weight?
