10. The birth weights (in kilograms) are recorded for a sample of male babies born to mothers taking a special vitamin supplement (based on data from the New York Department of Health). When testing the claim that the mean birth weight for all male babies of mothers given vitamins is equal to 3.39kg, which is the mean weight of the population of all male babies, a sample of 16 babies had a mean of 3.675kg and a standard deviation of 0.657. Based on these results, does the vitamin supplement appear to have any effect on the mean birth weight?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Use the 0.01 level of significance.

Null Hypothesis: H0: µ = 3.39kg

Alternate Hypothesis: HA µ ≠ 3.39 kg

Two sided test: 99% C.I

Z = 3.675± 2.575 * 0.657

Z (1.983, 5.366)

Since M0 falls inside this confidence interval, we cannot reject the Null Hypothesis. at 1% level of significance we can reject Ha.

Did i get it right?
