Fill in the missing entries in the ANOVA table. [6 pts] b. Test the hypothesis H 0 : { γ ik AC =0 for all i, k} versus H a : {H 0 is false} at the α =.05 level. [7 pts] Test Statistic = ___f=2.91___ Reject Region = ___{f > F .05,2,18 = 3.55}__ Circle one: Retain c. Compute the value of R 2 in this analysis . Does this number suggest a good fit of the model to the data? Explain briefly. [6 pts] % 8 . 85 42 . 70 98 . 9 1 R 2 = - = This is a high R 2 that indicates a good fit of the model to the data. d. Based on the numerical results, what smaller model may adequately describe the data? Give a one-sentence explanation for your answer . [6 pts] X ijkl = μ + α i + β j + χ k + γ jk BC + ε ijkl Factors A, B, C, and the interaction between B and C are judged significant at the .05 level.
