The meanage of children is assigned to the new drug is 12.4 with standard deviationof 3.6 years. The mean age of children assigned to the placebo is 13.0 with a standard deviation of 4.0 years. Is there a difference in ages assigned to the treatments? Apply the two sample z test at 5% level of significance.
Critical z value = +/-
Ho: there is no difference in ages assigned to the treatments
Ha: there is difference in ages …
