A researcher is conducting a study to examine the effects of cognitive behavior therapy for the treatment of social anxiety in a sample of 16 participants. He measures the social anxiety scores of participants before the tratment and then again after treatment and the resulting data is as follows:
n=16,M0=5,s=4
a) What type of design is this study (single-sample, independent measures, repeated measures)
b)State the null and alternate hypotheses
c) Using an α level of .05(α=.05), identify the critical values of t for a 2-tailed test.

Step 1
Experiment is conducted to study effect of cognitive behavior therapy for treatment of social anxiety.
a) This would be repeated measure study, since observations are noted for study before performing the experiment and after the experiment.
Data is
n=16,M0=5,s=4
Step 2
b) Hypotheses can be constructed as:
H0: There is no effect of cognitive behavior therapy for the treatment of social anxiety.
H1: There is effect of cognitive behavior therapy for the treatment of social anxiety.
c) Significance level (α)=0.05
This data follows t-distribution with 15 degrees of freedom.
Critical value, t(n1),α2=t(161),0.052=2.1314 (calculated from t-table)

You have an unfair coin: the probability that it comes up heads on a single toss is 0.3. You offer to play a game with a friend. If it comes up heads twice in a row, you give them $1. If it doesn't, they give you $4. What are your expected winnings in this game? (Remember that winnings can be positive or negative!)

Let f ( x ) = x 2 + 1 x 2 9
So to find the y intercept I take f ( 0 ) correct? So when I substitute 0 for x I got 1 9 so is the y intercept ( 0 , 1 9 )
Also to find the x intercept I set the numerator equal to 0. So then I got x 2 + 1 = 0 but wouldn't that make x 2 = 1 which is imaginary?
