In order for a lifestyle change to be considered effective, the target is to have the average cholesterol of this group be below 200. After 6 months of exercising more and eating better, an SRS of 51 patients at risk for heart disease had an average cholesterol of x = 192, with a standard deviation s = 21. Is this sufficient evidence that eating better and exercising more is effective in meeting the target? Assume the distribution of the cholesterol for patients in this group is approximately Normal with mean &#956;.
