1) A doctor is interested in determining whether a film about exercise will change 10 persons attitudes about exercise. The results of his questionnaire are shown. A higher numerical value shows a more favorable attitude toward exercise. Is there enough evidence to support the claim, at alpha= 0.05, that there was a change in attitude?

(Complete the Proper Box for this study): Paired Design Hypothesis: a. Conduct an F- test of variances to determine whether to use a pooled t-test or non-pooled t-test: Test statistic F (3 decimal places) =_______ Test statistic= P-value (4 decimal places) =________ Conclusion (select one): ____There is evidence that the variances are different. ____ No evidence that the variances are different. Independent Design

P-Value=

Decision and conclusion:

b. Based on your F-test of variances which test of means will be conducted? (Select one) ____a pooled t-test ____ non-pooled t-test. c. Conduct the proper t-test selected above. Hypothesis:

P-Value= Decision and conclusion:

2) A researcher wanted to compare the pulse rates of identical twins to see whether there was any difference. Eight sets of twins were selected. The rates are given in the table as number of beats per minute. At alpha=0.01, is there a significant difference in the average pulse rates of twins?

5) A dietitian wishes to see if a persons cholesterol level will change if the diet is supplemented by a certain mineral. Six subjects were pretested, and then they took the mineral supplement for a 6-week period. The results are shown in the table. (Cholesterol level is measured in milligrams per deciliter) Can it be concluded that the cholesterol level has been changed at alpha= 0.10? Assume the variable is approximately normally distributed.

6) A physical education director claims by taking a special vitamin, a weight lifter can increase his strength. Eight athletes are selected and given a test of strength, using the standard bench press. After 2 weeks of regular training, supplemented with the vitamin, they are tested again. Test the effectiveness of the vitamin regimen at alpha= 0.05. Each value in these data represents the maximum number of pounds the athlete can bench-press. Assume that the variable is approximately normally distributed.
