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.

Researchers wanted to compare the effectiveness of a water softener used with a filtering process with a water softener used without filtering. Ninety locations were randomly divided into two groups of equal size. Group A locations used a water softener and the filtering process, while group B used only the water softener. At the end of three months, a water sample was tested at each location for its level of softness. (Water softness was measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the softest water.) The results were as follows: Group A (water softener and filtering) \(\displaystyle{x}_{{1}}={2.1}\)
\(\displaystyle{s}_{{1}}={0.7}\) Group B (water softener only) \(\displaystyle{x}_{{2}}={1.7}\)
\(\displaystyle{s}_{{2}}={0.4}\) Determine, at the 90% confidence level, whether there is a difference between the two types of treatments.
