A researcher wishes to determine whether people with high blood pressure can reduce their blood pressure by following a particular diet. Subjects were randomly assigned to either a treatment group or a control group. The mean blood pressure was determined for each group, and a 95% confidence interval for the difference in the means for the treatment group versus the control group, Ut-Uc was found to be (-21, -6). ( t –stands for treatment group and C stands for control group)

  1. We are 95% confident that the average blood pressure of those who follow the diet is between 6 and 21 points higher than the average for those who do not follow the diet.
  2. The probability that the mean blood pressure for those on the diet is lower than for those not on the diet is 0.95.
  3. Since all of the values in the confidence interval are less than 0, we are unable to conclude that there is difference in blood pressure for those who follow the diet and those who do not.
  4. We are 95% confident that the average blood pressure of those who follow the diet is between 6 and 21 points lower than the average for those who do not follow the diet.

A 90% confidence interval for the difference, U1-U2 between the mean weekly salary of all female employees and the mean weekly salary of all male employees was determined to be (-$110,$10)

  1. 90% of the time females at this company make less than males
  2. Since 0 is contained in the interval, the probability that the male employees at this company earn the same as females at this company is 0.9
  3. Based on these data, we are 90% confident that the male employees at this company average between $110 less and $10 more per week than the female employees.

A high school coach uses a new technique in training middle distance runners. He records the times for 4 different athletes to run 800 meters before and after this training. A 90% confidence interval for the difference of the means before and after the training, μB – μA, was determined to be(2.7, 4.2) 

 

        The probability that the average time for the 800-meter run for middle distance runners at this high school is between 2.7 and 4.2 seconds shorter after the training is 0.9.

        We are 90% confident that a randomly selected middle distance runner at this high school will have a time for the 800-meter run that is between 2.7 and 4.2 seconds shorter after the training than before the training.

        Based on this sample, we are 90% confident that the average time for the 800-meter run for middle distance runners at this high school is between 2.7 and 4.2 seconds longer after the new training.

        Based on this sample, we are 90% confident that the average time for the 800-meter run for middle distance runners at this high school is between 2.7 and 4.2 seconds shorter after the new training.

A 95% confidence interval for PA-PB, is given by (0.08,0.14) where PA is the proportion of respondents who answered “legal” in state A and PB is the proportion of respondents who responded “legal” in state B. Based on the 95% confidence interval, what can we conclude about the percentage of respondents who favor legalization in state B versus state A?

 

        Since all of the values in the confidence interval are less than 1, we can conclude that there is a significant difference between the percentage in favor of legalization in state B and the percentage in favor of legalization in state A.

        Since all of the values in the confidence interval are less than 1, we are unable to conclude that there is a significant difference between the percentage in favor of legalization in state B and the percentage in favor of legalization in state A.

        Since all of the values in the confidence interval are greater than 0, we can conclude that the percentage in favor of legalization was greater in state A than it was in state B.

        Since all of the values in the confidence interval are greater than 0, we can conclude that the percentage in favor of legalization was greater in state B than it was in state A.
