Question
A study is run to evaluate the effectiveness of an exercise program in reducing systolic blood pressure in patients with prehypertension (defined as a systolic blood pressure between or a diastolic blood pressure between ). A total of patients with prehypertension enroll in the study, and their systolic blood pressures are measured. Each patient then participates in an exercise training program where they learn proper techniques and execution of a series of exercises. Patients are instructed to do the exercise program 3 times per week for 6 weeks. After 6 weeks, systolic blood pressure are again measured. The data are shown below.
