2. An investigator hypothesizes that cholesterol levels in children might be affected by educating their parents on proper nutrition and exercise. A sample of 40 families with a child between the ages of 10-15 who has been diagnosed with high cholesterol agree to participate in the study. All parents are provided educational information on nutrition and exercise. After following the prescribed program, their childÂ’s total cholesterol level is measured. The childrenÂ’s mean cholesterol level is 180 with a standard deviation of 21.5. Is there significant evidence of a reduction in total cholesterol in the children? Run the appropriate test at the 5% level of significance and assume that the null value for total cholesterol is 191.
