A clinic offers a weight reduction program. A review of its records found the following weight losses, in pounds, for a random sample of ten of its patients at the conclusion of the program.
Assume the population distribution is normal. Use Excel to compute necessary statistics and probabilities.
(a) Find a 99% confidence interval for the population mean weight-loss.
(b) Using the result in (a), test at the 1% significance level the null hypothesis that the population mean equals 20 against the two-sided alternative.
(c) Test the null hypothesis that the population mean weight-loss equals 20 pounds against the one-sided alternative hypothesis that the population mean weight-loss is lower than 20 pounds at the 5% level.
