Question 11 options:

The cholesterol level of patients who had heart attacks was measured two days after the

heart attack and then again four days after the heart attack. The researchers want to see if the cholesterol level of patients who have heart attacks reduces as the time since their heart attack increases. Data is in following table:

Do the data show that the mean cholesterol level of patients that have had a heart attack reduces as the time increases since their heart attack? Test at the 1% level.

if μ1 = mean cholesterol level of patients who had heart attacks was measured two days after the heart attack. AND μ2 = mean cholesterol level of patients who had heart attacks was measured four days after the heart attack. Which of the following statements correctly defines the null hypothesis HO?

 μ1 − μ2 > 0 (μd > 0)

 μ1 - μ2 < 0 (μd < 0)

 μ1 = μ2  (μd = 0)

OR  μ1 + μ2 = 0

Enter letter corresponding to correct answer



 (ii) IF  μ1 = mean cholesterol level of patients who had heart attacks was measured two days after the heart attack. AND μ2 = mean cholesterol level of patients who had heart attacks was measured four days after the heart attack. Which of the following statements correctly defines the alternate hypothesis HA?

 μ1 − μ2 < 0 (μd < 0)

 μ1 - μ2 > 0 (μd > 0)

 μ1 = μ2  (μd = 0)

 μ1 + μ2 = 0

Enter letter corresponding to correct answer

 



 (iii) WHAT IS the level of significance α used:

Enter in decimal form. Examples of correctly entered answers:  0.01  0.02   0.05   0.10


 (iv)  Determine sample mean of differences xd


Enter in decimal form to nearest hundredth. Examples of correctly entered answers: 

0.01  

0.02

0.30

11.25


 (v) Determine sample standard deviation of differences sd 

Enter in decimal form to nearest ten-thousandth. Examples of correctly entered answers: 

0.0001   0.0020    0.0500    0.3000  0.5115

 


 (vi) Calculate and enter test statistic

Enter value in decimal form rounded to nearest ten-thousandth, with appropriate sign (no spaces). Examples of correctly entered answers:

-2.0104     -0.3070       +1.6000      +11.0019


 (vii) Determine degrees of freedom for the sample of differences dfd :

Enter value in integer form. Examples of correctly entered answers:

2   5   9   23   77


 (viii) Using tables, calculator, or spreadsheet: Determine and enter p-value corresponding to test statistic.

Enter value in decimal form rounded to nearest ten-thousandth. Examples of correctly entered answers:

0.0001   0.0021    0.0305   0.6004    0.8143   1.0000

 


 (ix) Comparing p-value and α value, which is the correct decision to make for this hypothesis test? 

A. Reject Ho

B. Fail to reject Ho

C. Accept Ho

D. Accept HA

Enter letter corresponding to correct answer.

 


  (x) Select the statement that most correctly interprets the result:

A. The result is not statistically significant at .01 level of significance. Sufficient evidence exists to support the claim that the mean cholesterol level of patients that have had a heart attack reduces as time increases since their heart attack. 

B. The result is not statistically significant at .01 level of significance. There is not enough evidence to support the claim that the mean cholesterol level of patients that have had a heart attack reduces as time increases since their heart attack. 

C. The result is statistically significant at .01 level of significance. There is not enough evidence to support the claim that the mean cholesterol level of patients that have had a heart attack reduces as time increases since their heart attack. 

D. The result is statistically significant at .01 level of significance. Sufficient evidence exists to support the claim that the mean cholesterol level of patients that have had a heart attack reduces as time increases since their heart attack. 

Enter letter corresponding to most correct answer
