Module 1 discussion-evaluating data claims

Need 300 words Initial Post and two replies of 75 words each. I will post the replies later. Initial Post due in 12 hours.

A recent advertisement for “the fat burning pill”, Lipozene, claims that people who have taken the pill have lost over 400% more weight. According to the ad, the claim was based on a clinical study consisting of two groups: the active group and the placebo group. They said that “during 60 clinical trials, the active group lost 2.75 lbs and the placebo group gained 2.18 lbs”.

Explain whether in your judgment, the statistics presented in this ad is meaningful, incomplete, misleading, or difficult to interpret meaningfully. Justify your statements by reasoning.
