 # A random sample of n = 25 scores is selected from a normal population with a mean of μ = 40. After a treatment is administered to the individuals in the sample, the sample mean is found to be M = 44. a. If the population standard deviation is σ = 5, is the sample mean sufficient to conclude that the treatment has a significant effect? Use a two-tailed test with α = .05. b. If the population standard deviation is σ = 15, is the sample mean sufficient to conclude that the treatment has a significant effect? Use a two-tailed test with α = .05. c. Comparing your answers for parts a and b, explain how the magnitude of the standard deviation influences the outcome of a hypothesis test. ### Essentials of Statistics for the B...
