##### Reference no: EM13106979

A nutritionist heard on the radio an amazing new diet drink that if taken at bedtime you will lose weight as you're sleeping. To top it off you can eat anything you want because the diet fuel will burn it off. She thought it was another one of those false claims that would rip-off dieters and wanted to prove them wrong.

She would get a group of 10 overweight people who just enrolled in her class and tell them to eat whatever they wanted but to drink the new diet drink that she would supply for the next two weeks. She would weigh them again at the end of the two weeks. She figured if the group weighed the same or significantly more than they did prior to the two week trial period, the product was a scam.

1. What is the hypothesis that the nutritionist is investigating?

2. What is the independent variable? What are the levels of the independent variables?

3. What is the dependent variable?

4. Which statistical test would the nutritionist use to test her hypothesis?

5. For each of the sets of output below, what can you tell about the dependent variable? What decision would the nutritionist make?

### Write a Review

#### Confidence level for all the patients

A local health center noted that in a sample of 400 patients 80 were referred to them by the local hospital. a) Provide a 95% confidence level for all the patients who are referred to the health center by the hospital.

#### Correlation between variables

Demonstrates clearly and fully the ability to use Excel to perform the correlation for the data set.

#### Defining the decision rule

Define the decision rule. Calculate the value of the test statistic.

#### Determining modification reduced number of traffic accidents

At 0.01 significance level is it sensible to conclude that modification reduced number of traffic accidents?

#### Determining conditional distribution

A company sells two products (Product 1 and Product 2) that tend to be substitutes for each other. That is, if a customer buys Product 1, she tends to not buy Product 2, and vice versa.

#### Significance level to test the claim

Consider a hypothesis test that uses a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the mean body tem of the population is less than 98.6

#### Mean and standard deviation for the observations

Use your calculator to find the mean and standard deviation for the 9 observations that remain when you leave out the outlier. How does the outlier affect the values of x and s? Is s a resistant measure of spread?

#### Decision making using perfect information

Use a decision tree to describe the possible strategies and the consequences (or payoffs) of each. Show your decision tree.

#### Monte carlo simulation-sensitivity analysis

A decision maker is working on a problem that requires her to study the uncertainty surrounding the payoff of an investment. There are three possible levels of payoff -\$1,000, \$5,000, and \$10,000.

#### Correlation coefficient-margin of error

What units represent the margin of error? Suppose you want to decrease the margin of error, but want to keep the 95% confidence interval. What do you need to do?

#### Confidence interval for population mean number weekly miles

Find a 99% confidence interval for the population mean number of weekly miles.

#### Quick rule to verified confidence interval for proportion

Construct a 90 percent confidence interval for the proportion of all kernels that would not pop.
