1.Statistics questions help please! I have three questions
High levels of cholesterol in the blood are linked to a higher risk
d are linked to a higher risk of developing coronary heart diseases. A researcher is investigating two types of interventions (e.g. A, B) to reduce the cholesterol level. Study participants were randomized to receive either intervention A or B. Some subjects dropped from the study due to reasons not related to the interventions. In order to determine which intervention was more effective, the mean cholesterol concentrations were compared between the two groups at the end of the study. The total cholesterol levels for the patients undergoing the intervention A were: 240, 238, 245, 256, 289, 190, 189, 205, 200, 214, 237, 247, 254, 209, 211, 200 mg/dl. The total cholesterol levels for the patients undergoing the intervention B were: 213, 188, 199, 247, 248, 239, 256, 244, 206, 223, 241, 261, 226, and 231 mg/dl.
Which intervention was more effective? Consider alpha=0.05.
Intervention B was more effective.
Intervention A was more effective.
Impossible to tell based on the information provided.
The two interventions were not statistically significant different.
