Let X be a random variable representing the remission time in weeks for all patients using the new drug. Assume that the distribution of x is normal. A previously used drug treatment has a mean remission time of 12.5 weeks. Does the data indicate that the mean remission time using the new drug is different from 12.5 week at a level of significance of 0.01?
State the null hypothesis:
A. Âµ=12.5
B. Âµâ‰ 12.5
C. Âµ<12.5
D. Âµ>12.5
Answer: Choose an item.
State the alternative hypothesis:
A. Âµ=12.5
B. Âµâ‰ 12.5
C. Âµ<12.5
D. Âµ>12.5
