To test the effectiveness of an exercise program

By Allen Kazadi

To test the effectiveness of an exercise program in reducing high blood pressure, 15 participants had their blood pressures recorded before beginning the program and again after completing the program. The difference (after minus before) in blood pressure was recorded for each participant, and the sample mean difference was calculated. A hypothesis test will be conducted to investigate whether there is convincing statistical evidence for a reduction in blood pressure for all who complete the program. Which of the following is the correct set of hypotheses?

A. H0 : bar xD = 0
Ha : bar xD is not equal to 0

B. H0 : bar xD = 0
Ha : bar xD > 0

C. H0 : mu D = 0
Ha : mu D is not equal to 0

D. H0 : mu D = 0
Ha : mu D > 0

E. H0 : mu D = 0
Ha : mu d < 0

Answer:

E. H0 : mu D = 0
Ha : mu d < 0
