systolic blood pressure readings for each participant are provided in the
following table. (This data set could be analyzed with a dependent-samples t
test. However, for the sake of practice, use the corresponding nonparametric
a State the null and alternative
b Compute the appropriate nonparametric
c What is the critical value for α =
.05 (two-tailed test)?
d Interpret the findings.
