serum cholesterol. Investigators will enroll participants with total cholesterol levels between 200-240, they will be randomized to receive the new drug or a placebo and followed for 2 months, and the total cholesterol will be measured. Investigators plan to run a test of hypothesis and want 80% power to detect a difference of 10 points in mean total cholesterol levels between groups. They assume that 10% of the participants randomized will be lost over the 2 month follow-up. How many participants must be enrolled in the study? Assume that the standard deviation of total cholesterol is 18.5.
