Unformatted text preview: the second third of the run and a third level of coagulant was assigned to the final third of the run. The response variable was the number of gloves with pinhole defects (for each third of a run). 1. Identify the blocking variable, the whole plot, the whole plot factor, the split plot and the split plot factor. Which terms are confounded? 2. Which model term would latex preparation method be tested against? Which model term would coagulant concentration be tested against? 3. What would be appropriate SAS or Minitab code for analyzing this experiment? 1...
