Research Issue: Determining calorie needs before and after a specific treatment plan to determine if the plan worked or not.
Use the attached data set to calculate the test statistic. Chapter 7 has an explanation of how to calculate a t test for dependent means. The numbers in the before column are the calories needs before your treatment plan. Likewise the numbers in the after column are the calorie needs after the treatment program. I know the numbers are not reflective of real calorie needs, but for the sake of this study, assume that each number is multiplied by 100 to determine calories, but do the math on the numbers as is. (Attached is the excel data to calculate the test statistic)
