Loss Overweight or obese adults from psychiatric programs were recruited and randomly assigned to a treatment group or control group. Patients in the treatment group received both weight-management sessions plus exercise sessions plus their usual care. Patients in the control group received their usual treatment for mental illness and no additional treatment. After 18 months, some of the patients had lost 5% or more of their weight, and some had not. The table summarizes the data.
a. Find the percentage of each group that lost 5% or more, and compare them descriptively. That is, report both percentages, and indicate what these sample percentages suggest about the effectiveness of the treatment program.
b. Test the hypothesis that the treatment and result are independent using a significance level of 0.05.
