25.9

6.3

11.8

15.4

20.3

16.8

19.5

12.3

17.2

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.
