Concept used:
Let \(\mu_{1}\) be the mean heart rate of intervention drivers and \(\mu_{2}\) be the mean heart rate of control drivers.
Consider null and Alternative hypothesis.
Null hypothesis, \(H_{0} : \mu_{1} = \mu_{2}\).
Alternative hypothesis, \(H_{0} : \mu_{1} < \mu_{2}\)
Here, the hypothesis test is left tailed.
Level of significance is 5%.
Determine the test statistics under Null hypothesis as follows.

\(d_{f}=\frac{\frac{\left[\left(\frac{x_{1}^{2}}{n_{1}}\right)+\left(\frac{x_{2}^{2}}{n_{2}}\right)\right]^{2}}{\left(\frac{x_{1}^{2}}{n_{1}}\right)^{2}}}{n_{1}}-1+\frac{\left(\frac{x_{2}^{2}}{n_{2}}\right)^{2}}{n_{2}}-1\)

\(=\frac{\frac{\left[\left(\frac{5.49^{2}}{10}\right)+\left(\frac{9.04^{2}}{31}\right)\right]^{2}}{\frac{5.49^{2}}{10^{2}}}}{10}-1+\frac{\left(\frac{9.04^{2}}{31}\right)^{2}}{31}-1\approx25\)
Referring the table with 25 degree of freedom, to determine the P-value that is P - value > 0.10.
Using technology, P-value is 0.675 .
Since the P-value is 0.675 which is greater than level of significance \(\alpha = 0.05\). So we are fail to reject our null hypothesis.
Therefore, the given data does not provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the intervention program reduces mean heart rate of urban drivers in Stockholm.

Use either the critical-value approach or the P-value approach to perform the required hypothesis test. For several years, evidence had been mounting that folic acid reduces major birth defects. A. Czeizel and I. Dudas of the National Institute of Hygiene in Budapest directed a study that provided the strongest evidence to date. Their results were published in the paper “Prevention of the First Occurrence of Neural-Tube Defects by Periconceptional Vitamin Supplementation” (New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 327(26), p. 1832). For the study, the doctors enrolled women prior to conception and divided them randomly into two groups. One group, consisting of 2701 women, took daily multivitamins containing 0.8 mg of folic acid, the other group, consisting of 2052 women, received only trace elements. Major birth defects occurred in 35 cases when the women took folic acid and in 47 cases when the women did not. a. At the 1% significance level, do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that women who take folic acid are at lesser risk of having children with major birth defects? b. Is this study a designed experiment or an observational study? Explain your answer. c. In view of your answers to parts (a) and (b), could you reasonably conclude that taking folic acid causes a reduction in major birth defects? Explain your answer.

An analysis of variance of the yields of five different varieties of wheat, observed on one plot each at each of six different locations. The data from this randomized block design are listed here:
Varieties, Location 1, Location 2, Location 3, Location 4, Location 5, Location 6
A, 35.3, 31.0, 32.7, 36.8, 37.2, 33.1
B, 30.7, 32.2, 31.4, 31.7, 35.0, 32.7
C, 38.2, 33.4, 33.6, 37.1, 37.3, 38.2
D, 34.9, 36.1, 35.2, 38.3, 40.2, 36.0
E, 32.4, 28.9, 29.2, 30.7, 33.9, 32.1
a. Use the appropriate nonparametric test to determine whether the data provide sufficient evidence to indicate a difference in the yields for the five different varieties of wheat. Test using αα=.05.
b. How do the analysis of variance F test compare with the test in part a? Explain.

Who is more likely to binge drink—male or female college students? The Harvard School of Public Health surveys random samples of male and female undergraduates at four-year colleges and universities about whether they have engaged in binge drinking. What type of study design is being used to produce data?

Use either the critical-value approach or the P-value approach to perform the required hypothesis test. Approximately 450,000 vasectomies are performed each year in the United States. In this surgical procedure for contraception, the tube carrying sperm from the testicles is cut and tied. Several studies have been conducted to analyze the relationship between vasectomies and prostate cancer. The results of one such study by E. Giovannucci et al. appeared in the paper “A Retrospective Cohort Study of Vasectomy and Prostate Cancer in U.S. Men” (Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 269(7), pp. 878-882). Of 21,300 men who had not had a vasectomy, 69 were found to have prostate cancer, of 22,000 men who had had a vasectomy, 113 were found to have prostate cancer. a. At the 1% significance level, do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that men who have had a vasectomy are at greater risk of having prostate cancer? b. Is this study a designed experiment or an observational study? Explain your answer. c. In view of your answers to parts (a) and (b), could you reasonably conclude that having a vasectomy causes an increased risk of prostate cancer? Explain your answer.
