Posted by Richard on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at 5:22pm.

The Deborah Heart Institute performs many open-heart surgery procedures. Recently research physicians at the Institute developed a new heart bypass procedure that they believe reduces the average length of recovery. The hospital board will not adopt the procedure unless there is substantial evidence to suggest that it is better than the current procedure. Records indicate that the mean recovery rate for the current procedure is 42 days with a standard deviation of 5 days. Test this hypothesis on a sample=36 patients and a sample mean of 40.2 days using a rejection region.
