Question #267983

It has been known that a fixed dose of a certain drug results to an

average increase of pulse rate by at least 12 beats per minute with

a standard deviation of 5. A group of 20 patients given the same

dose showed the following increases: 15, 12, 10, 8, 14, 15, 16, 11,

7, 13, 9, 10, 12, 11, 9, 10, 17, 14, 15, 7. Is there proof to show that

this group has a lower average increase of pulse rate than the ones

in general? Use 0.05 level of significance

Expert's answer

It is greater than negative critical value. There is not proof to show that

this group has a lower average increase of pulse rate than the ones in general at 0.05 level of significance.
