Textbook Problem

A researcher plans to conduct an experiment evaluating the effect of a treatment. A sample of *n =* 9 participants is selected and each person receives the treatment before being tested on a standardized dexterity task. The treatment is expected to lower scores on the test by an average of 30 points. For the regular population, scores on the dexterity task form a normal distribution with μ = 240 and σ = 30.

**a.** If the researcher uses a two-tailed test with α – .05, what is the power of the hypothesis test?

**b.** Again assuming a two-tailed test with α – .05, what is the power of the hypothesis test if the sample size is increased to *n* = 25?
