4. A commonly used drug produces increases in blood pressure that are normally distributed with mean μ-6 and standard deviation σ-2.5. A new drug is expected to produce normally distributed changes but with possibly different values of μ and σ. The new drug was given to 10 individuals with the following results: 8.05, 12.16, 11.16, 11.28, 11.11, 9.66, 8.40, 13.30, 5.32, 8.87 Note that9.931, 2.342 (a) Use the t-test to determine if there is evidence that μ yi 6 at level α = 0.05? Clearly state your hypotheses. (b) Give a 90% two-sided confidence interval for μ. (c) At the 5% level is there evidence that σ 2.5? (d) Use the sign test to test the hypothesis that the new drug has a higher median increase in blood pressure. Use α-0.05. (e) Use the Wilcoxon test to test the hypothesis that the new drug has a higher median increase in blood pressure. Use a 0.05 and the normal approximation to the distribution of the Wilcoxon statistic (f) Give an approximate 90% distribution-free confidence interval for the median C4] change in blood pressure.
