A standard macro drip set delivers 15 drops per milliliter. So, for a 1000 ml flask, the total number of drops would be 15,000 drops (1000 ml * 15 drops/ml). If the current rate is to administer this over 6 hours, then the rate in drops per minute is: Current rate = Total drops / Total time in minutes = 15000 drops / (6 hours * 60 minutes/hour) = 15000 drops / 360 minutes = 41.67 drops/minute Now, if we want to slow this down to an 8 hourly rate, we can calculate the new rate as follows: New rate = Total drops / New total time in minutes = 15000 drops / (8 hours * 60 minutes/hour) = 15000 drops / 480 minutes = 31.25 drops/minute So, the new rate is approximately 31.25 drops per minute. Please note that in practice, drip rates are usually rounded to the nearest whole number, so you might administer approximately 31 drops per minute.

did an analysis of dropout from the nursing faculty at the Universidad Veracruzana. With a poblation of 122 students, it turned out that according to the gender data, the female sex predominates with 82%, and the male sex male is found with 12%. The main factors why students drop out are, first of all, "Not "re-enrolled" at 49%, second place "Personal reasons" at 20%, third place "change of school" in 11%, "lack of documents" and "economic reasons" in 7%, change of residence and lack of social service in 3%. Of this sample, how many students dropped out for other reasons?

The boxplot below is of the sodium contents levels taken from a random sample of 30 bottles. With this data investigate the claim using SPSS to apply the appropriate test. Download the data and transfer it into SPSS. Check that your data transfer has been successful by obtaining the Std. Error of the mean for your data which should appear in SPSS output as 0.03900.. If you do not have this exact value, then you may have not transferred your data from the Excel file to SPSS correctly. Do not continue with the test until your value agrees as otherwise you may not have correct answers. Unless otherwise directed you should report all numeric values to the accuracy displayed in the SPSS output that is supplied when your data has been transferred correctly. In the following questions, all statistical tests should be carried out at the 0.05 significance level. Sample mean and median Complete the following concerning the mean and median of the data. mean =  mg/L 95% CI:  to  mg/L Based upon the 95% confidence interval, is it plausible that the average sodium content is 36.9 mg/L?      median:  mg/L The median value is      36.9 mg/L. Skewness Complete the following concerning the skewness of the data. Skewness statistic =        Std. Error =  The absolute value of the skewness statistic     less than 2 x Std. Error Therefore the data can be considered to come from a population that is      . Normality test Complete the following summary concerning the formal testing of the normality of the data. H0: The data come from a population that     normal H1: The data come from a population that     normal Application of the Shapiro-Wilk test indicated that the normality assumption     reasonable for sodium content (S-W(  )=  , p=   ). Main test Using the guidelines you have been taught that consider sample size, skewness and normality, choose and report the appropriate main test from the following ( Appropriate ONE ) You have selected that you wish to report the one-sample t-test. H0: The mean sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L H1: The mean sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L Application of the one-sample t-test indicated that the mean is      36.9 mg/L (t(  ) =  , p =   ). You have selected that you wish to report the Wilcoxon signed rank test. H0: The median sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L H1: The median sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L Application of the Wilcoxon signed rank test indicated that the median is      36.9 mg/L (z =  , N =  , p =   ).
