    A researcher is evaluating the influence of a treatment using a sample selected from a normally distributed population with a mean of u = 80 and a standard deviation of o= 20. The researcher expects a 12 point treatment effect and plans to use a two-tailed hypothesis test with a = .05.

    a. Compute the power of the test if the researcher uses a sample of n = 16 individuals
    b. Compute the power of the test if the researcher uses a sample of n = 25 individuals.
