When it was first introduced as an antidepressant ten years ago,

the average patient with a Prozac prescription was 32 years old. In

a recent random sample of 20 prescription holders, the average age

was 25 with a standard deviation s = 10 years. Use this information

to answer the following.

11. If you wanted to determine if Prozac users are younger now

on average, which of the following would be your null

hypothesis?

A.☐= 25 B.☐= 32. C. ☐= 7. D.☐< 32 E.☐1-2 = 0

12. Which would be the logical alternative hypothesis? A.☐>

25

B.☐1- 2<0

C.☐D =7 D.☐< 32

E.☐32

13. If you assumed that the population of Prozac users had a

normally distributed age distribution (because the sample is

small), which of the following would be your critical value for

determining whether to reject or not reject the null using alpha =

.10

A. ☐ 1.330 B. ☐ -1.729 C. ☐ -1.325 D. ☐ 1.328 E. ☐ -1.328

14. The t score you would calculate from your sample data would

be A. ☐2.236

B.☐.70 C.☐.35. D. ☐ -2.236. E. ☐ -3.13
