Scenario 1: Red blood cells are still the most widely transfused blood component worldwide. At present, the most widely used protocol for the storage of red blood cells lasts for up to 42 days. A lab technologist is testing a new protocol for red blood cell storage. Typically, 30% of the vials of the blood prepared using the current protocol show visible agglutination (clumping of red blood cells) after 60 days. She selects a random sample of 200 vials prepared with the new process and finds that after 60 days, only 20 vials show signs of agglutination. Does this data allow us to say that the new protocol makes a difference in the proportion of vials that tend to agglutinate within 50 days?
What is the null hypothesis equation for this experiment?
What proportion of cells show signs of agglutination with the current protocol?
What proportion of cells show signs of agglutination with the new protocol?
What is the value for N?

Scenario 2. To determine whether antimicrobial treatment prevent a bacterial infection, scientists conducted a randomized, doubleblind, placebocontrolled trial of treatment with 10 day supply of 200mg/dose of ampicillin in 482 subjects who had a laceration (cut) that required 4 or more sutures (stiches). They followed those subjects at base line, three weeks, and six weeks after exposure. The results are summarized in Table 1.

Scenario 3:
To determine the effectiveness of a new diuretic drug, urine output was measured in 20 men and compared to 20 men that received placebo control. The data are summarized in Table 2 below. The null hypothesis is: H0: μ Placebo = μ drug.
