Question

The strength of one’s immune system can be evaluated in several ways. One of the most popular methods involves measuring the concentration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the blood. In women, the mean blood ATP level is 390 ng/mL, and the standard deviation is 115 ng/mL. It has been hypothesized that women with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) have decreased immune function. A recent study found that a random sample of 30 women with MDD had an average blood ATP level of 355 ng/mL. Using a one-sample z test, what is the p-value of this result? (HINT: This involves a one-tailed hypothesis test).

Answer:Hence the value of p is 0.04746.

Step-by-step explanation:The test statistic is

[tex]Z=(\bar x-\mu)/(s/vn)\\\\=(355-390)/(115/ \sqrt(30))\\\\=-1.667[/tex]

The p-value= P(Z<-1.67) =0.04746. (from standard distribution table)

Therefore

p-value =0.04746.
