A researcher wanted to find the effect of a special diet on systolic blood pressure.
A researcher wanted to find the effect of a special diet on systolic blood pressure. She selected a sample of seven adults and put them on this dietary plan for 3 months. The following table gives the systolic blood pressures (in mm Hg) of these seven adults before and after the completion of this plan.
Let μd be the mean reduction in the systolic blood pressures due to this special dietary plan for the population of all adults. Construct a 95% confidence interval for μd. Assume that the population of paired differences is (approximately) normally distributed.
