Question

Question;I) A lab is comparing a test drug to a standard drug that is useful to patients having high blood pressure. The standard therapy was administered to patients with comparable hypertension and the responses to therapy were classified into one of 4 response categories:Marked decrease in blood pressure 50%Moderate decrease in blood pressure 25Slight decrease in blood pressure 10Stationary 15The lab then conducted a clinical trial with a random sample of 200 patients with high blood pressure on the test drug. Observed cell counts for the four categories were 120, 60, 10 and 10. Is this the same distribution as presented for the standard drug?What test is appropriate for this problem?State the null and alternate hypothesesFind the expected cell countsFind the test statisticHow many degrees of freedom will you use?Find the critical valueEstimate the p-value. This is the probability of being more extreme (on the right side) then the test statistic.What is your conclusion?II) Is there a relationship between the IQ of workers and their job performance?

Reach a conclusion usingthis confidence interval and the hypothesized difference from your null hypothesis.V) Does a dynamic system reduce the operative time relative to a static system. The following data onoperative times, in minutes, for the 2 systems is given. At the 1% significance level, does the data providesufficient evidence to conclude that the mean operative time is less with the dynamic system than with thestatic system?Dynamic370360500Static430445510445295315455455490490345450505335280535What test are you going to use?
