True or False? Assume a researcher recruits 150 African American and Caucasian individuals taking warfarin to determine if there is a difference in the mean dosage of the medication. If the mean dosage for 75 Caucasian individuals required to get their INR blood test in range is 6.1 mg with a standard deviation of 1.7 mg and the mean dosage for 75 African American individuals required to get their INR blood test in range is 4.3 mg with a standard deviation of 0.9 mg, the decision rule for a 10% level of significance would be to reject H0 if z ≤ -1.645 or z ≥ 1.645
