An investigator hypothesizes that cholesterol levels in children might be effected by educating their parents on proper nutrition and exercise. A sample of 40 families with a child between the ages of 10 to 15 who has been diagnosed with high cholesterol agree to participate in the study. All parents are provided educational information on nutrition and exercise. After following the prescribed program, their child's total cholesterol is measured. The children's mean cholesterol is 175 with a standard deviation of 19.5. Is there significant evidence of a reduction in total cholesterol in the children? Run the appropriate test at the 5% level of significance and assume the null value for total cholesterol is 191.
