Independent Sample Testing of Hypothesis

please help me solve this in simple steps. thank you.

A researcher conducts an independent-measures study comparing two treatments and reports the t statistics as t(25)= 2.071.
How many individuals participated in the entire study?
use a two tailed test with o=.05 and the distributions tool below to determine if there is significant difference between the two treatments.
t-critical=_ ______
* Reject the null hypothesis; there is no significant difference
* Fail to reject the null hypotheses; there is no significant difference.
* Reject the null hypothesis, there is a significant difference
* Fail to reject the null hypothesis; there is a significant difference.

Compute r2 to measure the percentage of variance accounted for by the treatment effect.
* 14.6%
*7.1%
* 7.6%
*13.6%

Answers:
The number of individuals participated in the entire study = 27
t-critical= +/- 2.060
Reject the null hypothesis, there is a significant difference
r2 = 14.6%

Explanations:
Here, the degrees of freedom of the test is given to be 25.
For an ...

Solution Summary

The solution explains the determination of sample size, critical value and percentage of variance accounted for by the treatment effect for a independent sample t test.
