Much concern has been expressed regarding the practice of using nitrates as meat preservatives. In one study involving possible effects of these chemicals, bacteria cultures were grown in a medium containing nitrates. The rate of uptake of radio-labeled amino acid was then determined for each culture, yielding the following observations:
Suppose that it is known that the mean rate of uptake for cultures without nitrates is 8000. Do the data suggest that the addition of nitrates results in a decrease in the mean rate of uptake? Test the appropriate hypotheses using a significance level of .10.
