Hypothesis Testing: Mean Heart Rate & Bumber Test

Here are heart rates for a sample of 30 students before and after a class break. At ? = .05, was there a significant difference in the mean heart rate? (a) State the hypotheses. (b) State the decision rule and sketch it. (c) Find the test statistic. (d) Make a decision. (e) Estimate the p-value and interpret it. HeartRate

In a bumper test, three types of autos were deliberately crashed into a barrier at 5 mph, and the resulting damage (in dollars) was estimated. Five test vehicles of each type were crashed, with the results shown below. Research question: Are the mean crash damages the same for these three
vehicles? Crash1
