Textbook Problem

A random simple is selected from a normal population with a mean of
*M* = 33.

**a.** If the sample consists of *n* = 16 scores, is the sample mean sufficient to conclude that the treatment has a significant effect? Use a two-tailed test with

**b.** If the sample consists of *n* = 64 scores, is the sample mean sufficient effect? Use a two-tailed test with

**c.** Comparing your answers for parts a and b, explain how the size of the sample influences the outcome of a hypothesis test.
