#### Solution Preview

I don't know how come you have those formulae, none is right.
Because this is a test of difference between means:
Using a .05 level of significance, test the hypothesis that there is no difference between the means of the two samples.
Let Md=Âµ1 - Âµ2, for this question, the null and alternative hypotheses are:
Ho: Âµ1 - Âµ2 = 0, or Md=0
H1: Âµ1 - Âµ2 <> 0 or Md<>0
Applying the general formula,

where Md is the difference between sample means, Âµ1 - Âµ2 is the difference between ...

#### Solution Summary

The solution addresses which is the correct formula for the scenario - Sample data were collected in a study of calcium supplements and their effects on blood pressure. One of the following formulas is correct:

A. (Ey)(Ex2)-(Ex)(Exy) / n(Ex2) - (Ex2)

B. n(Exy) - (Ex)(Ey) / square root of n(Ex2) - (Ex)2

C. r= n(Exy) - (Ex)(Ey) / sq. root of
[n(Ex2) - (Ex)2][n(Ey2) - (Ey)2
