23-A health care professional wants to determine whether individuals with hypertension who take Atenolol have significantly lower systolic blood pressure than individuals with hypertension who do not take Atenolol. For individuals who have not been prescribed Atenolol, the population systolic blood pressure mean is 155 (µ = 155). The 33 individuals who take Atenolol have an average systolic blood pressure of 145, with a sample standard deviation of 24. On the basis of these data, can the researcher conclude that the Atenolol significantly lowers systolic blood pressure? (Use these numbers only for this question!)

What is the z-value or t-value you obtained (your test statistic)? (numeric value only, including negative sign if required)

24-A health care professional wants to determine whether individuals with hypertension who take Atenolol have significantly lower systolic blood pressure than individuals with hypertension who do not take Atenolol. For individuals who have not been prescribed Atenolol, the population systolic blood pressure mean is 165 (µ = 165). The 30 individuals who take Atenolol have an average systolic blood pressure of 147, with a sample standard deviation of 6. On the basis of these data, can the researcher conclude that the Atenolol significantly lowers systolic blood pressure? Set alpha equal to .01.

The value of your calculated (obtained) test statistic is -16.51. What is your decision?

A- Reject the null hypothesis

B-Fail to reject the null hypothesis

25-A health care professional wants to determine whether individuals with hypertension who take Atenolol have significantly lower systolic blood pressure than individuals with hypertension who do not take Atenolol. For individuals who have not been prescribed Atenolol, the population systolic blood pressure mean is 165 (µ = 165). The 30 individuals who take Atenolol have an average systolic blood pressure of 147, with a sample standard deviation of 6. On the basis of these data, can the researcher conclude that the Atenolol significantly lowers systolic blood pressure? Set alpha equal to .01.

The best conclusion for this example (based on your answer to Q26) would be:

A-There is no significant difference in systolic blood pressure when comparing people who take Atenolol to the general population of people who do not take Atenolol.

B-There is a significant difference in systolic blood pressure when comparing people who take Atenolol to the general population of people who do not take Atenolol.

C-People taking Atenolol did not experience a significantly lower systolic blood pressure when compared to the general population of people who do not take Atenolol.

D-People taking Atenolol experienced a significantly lower systolic blood pressure when compared to the general population of people who do not take Atenolol.

26-A health care professional wants to determine whether individuals with hypertension who take Atenolol have significantly lower systolic blood pressure than individuals with hypertension who do not take Atenolol. For individuals who have not been prescribed Atenolol, the population systolic blood pressure mean is 165 (µ = 165). The 30 individuals who take Atenolol have an average systolic blood pressure of 147, with a sample standard deviation of 6. On the basis of these data, can the researcher conclude that the Atenolol significantly lowers systolic blood pressure? Set alpha equal to .01.

Based on whether you rejected or failed to reject the null hypothesis (Q26), and your conclusion in Q27, as a researcher, you would be more concerned with a:

A- Type I statistical error

B-Type II statistical error

27-A health care professional wants to determine whether individuals with hypertension who take Atenolol have significantly lower systolic blood pressure than individuals with hypertension who do not take Atenolol. For individuals who have not been prescribed Atenolol, the population systolic blood pressure mean is 165 (µ = 165). The 30 individuals who take Atenolol have an average systolic blood pressure of 175, with a sample standard deviation of 6. On the basis of these data, can the researcher conclude that the Atenolol significantly lowers systolic blood pressure? (Use these data for this question only!)
