A group of people are concerned that the coach of a local high school men's and women's basketball teams alters the amount of air in the basketball to gain an unfair advantage over opponents during home games. The idea is that the basketballs are pumped up with one pound per square inch less air than required, and his teams practiced with these altered balls all week prior to home basketball games. Since these under-pumped basketballs would react differently to being shot at a basket, the team that practiced with these balls would have an unfair advantage when it came to shooting free throws.

Describe how to use a retrospective study to determine if the home teams have an unfair advantage when shooting free-throws.

A retrospective study is an observational study in which past games are reviewed to see how many free-throws the team made when they had the altered basketballs versus when they had basketballs pumped up correctly. The differences in the number or percentage of free-throws made would be compared between the two types of basketballs.
