In this plot, all 3 treatments have about the same extent of dispersion of the residuals around 0. Thus, the error variances are about equal across these treatments. b. The normal Q-Q plot on combined residuals across all 3 treatments is shown below:
c. The residual sequence plots are shown below: 2
18.15 Helicopter service. An operations analyst in a sheri ff ’s department studied how frequently their emer- gency helicopter was used during the past year, by time of day (shift 1: 2 A.M.- 8 A.M.; shift 2: 8 A.M.-2 P.M.; shift 3: 2 P.M.-8 P.M.; shirt 4: 8 P.M.-2 A.M.).
