Math Word Problem asked 2020-12-15
To explain:The reason why the application problem is a better name than word problem.

## Answers (1) 2020-12-16
More often the word problems consist of almost all information in text format rather than the mathematical notations.
The information in the word problem is converted into mathematical notations by applying some mathematical operations or forming equations and solved by using some problem solving strategies.
As application of mathematical operations is used, it can be named as application problem.
Thus, the application problem is a better name than word problem.

To determine whether caffeine consumption affects the ability to solve math problems, a researcher had one group solve math problems after taking a cup of caffeinated drink and another group solve math problems after taking a cup of water. The group who took the caffeinated drink completed 35 problems in one hour and the group that had water completed 20 problems in one hour. Assuming the number of problems solved is normally distributed in each group, what statistical test would be used to test the research hypothesis? Explain your answer.
