To test the effectiveness of a newly developed medicine, 300 patients suffering from a heart ailment were divided into two groups of 150 people each. One group was treated with the new medicine, while the other was treated with an already existing, widely used medicine. In this scenario, identify the treatment group and the control group. What is the rationale behind dividing patients into two groups?

The treatment group refers to the group of patients who received the new medicine. The control group refers to the group of people who were not given the new medicine but were instead given the medicine that was already in widespread use. The rationale behind this division is to compare the health changes of the two groups over time. This experiment tests whether the new drug is better than the old drug.
