Question

# Consider the following competing

hypotheses:

Hypotheses: *H*_{0}: *μ*_{D} ≤ 5; *H*_{A}: *μ*_{D} > 5

Sample results: d = 7.3, sd = 6.2, n = 13

The following results are obtained using matched samples from two normally distributed populations:

**a-1.**Calculate the value of the test statistic. **(Round all intermediate calculations to at least 4 decimal places and final answer to 2 decimal places.)**

Test statistic

**a-2.**Assume normality to approximate the *p*-value.

0.010 < *p*-value < 0.025

0.10 < *p*-value < 0.2

0.05 < *p*-value < 0.10

0.025 < *p*-value < 0.05

0.005 < *p*-value < 0.010

**b.**Use the 5% significance level to make a conclusion.

Reject *H*_{0} since the *p*-value is less than *α*.

Reject *H*_{0} since the *p*-value is more than *α*.

Do not reject *H*_{0} since the *p*-value is less than *α*.

Do not reject *H*_{0} since the *p*-value is more than *α*.
