    Five heart patients were placed on a special diet to lose weight. Their weights (in kilograms) were recorded before the diet and one month after the diet. The following data was obtained.

    Patient Weight Before Weight After
    1 62 59
    2 65 63
    3 88 78
    4 76 75
    5 68 65

    Do these data suggest that the special diet is effective in reducing weights?
    Formulate and test the appropriate hypotheses at an α= 0.05 level of significance.
