(b) If appropriate (because the null hypothesis has been rejected), construct a 99 per- cent confidence interval and interpret this interval. Answers on page 437. 13.8/Assume that, on average, healthy young adults dream 90 minutes each night, as inferred from a number of measures, including rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. An investigator wishes to determine whether drinking coffee just before going to sleep affects the amount of dream time. After drinking a standard amount of coffee, dream time is monitored for each of 28 healthy young adults in a random sample. Results show a sample mean, X, of 88 minutes and a sample standard deviation, s, of 9 minutes. (a) Use tto test the null hypothesis at the .05 level of significance. (b) If appropriate (because the null hypothesis has been rejected), construct a 95 per 13.9 In the gas mileage test described in this chapter, would you prefer a smaller or a (a) the car manufacturer?

(b) Is the true critical value larger or smaller than that for the critical 2?
