Suppose $100$ volunteers were selected for a study over a $6$-month period.

Of these, $50$ randomly chosen subjects were given a weight loss drug. These $50\text{ subjects}$ had an average weight loss of $11.6\text{ lbs}$ with a standard deviation of $4.2\text{ pounds}$. The remaining $50\text{ subjects}$ lost an average of $12.2\text{ lbs}$ with a standard deviation of $4.1\text{ lbs}$ on a placebo.

What could one conclude about the weight loss drugs’ effectiveness?
