Answer on Statistics and Probability Question for Misty Cooke
& A researcher hypothesized that the pulse rates of long-distance athletes differ from those of other athletes. He believed that the runners’ pulses would be slower. He obtained a random sample of 10 long-distance runners. He measured their resting pulses. Their pulses were 45, 45, 64, 50, 58, 49, 47, 55, 50, 52 beats per minute. The average resting pulse of athletes in the general population is normally distributed with a pulse rate of 60 beats per minute.
a. t-test must be used , due to unknown variance.
b. This is a one tailed test.
c. H0: m<60;
& & Ha: m>=60
d. Tcv=-1.833 (n=10-1=9, with 0.95 confidence level )
f.Yes, we accept the hypothesis, because tobt<tcv. And the conslusion is that runners’ pulses would be slower than of other athletes.
I'm extremely satisfied with your work. Excellent quality. Always.
Just have a question. Do you also provide help in understanding a concept? Not an assignment but for my learning. If certain concepts in the book are not clear, can you provide a simplified explanation of it using math that's understandable? You can charge the equivalent of an assignment.
Some things in the chapter attachments I sent you are not clear. They do not have much solved examples either.
Thanks a lot,
