STAT 350 – Homework #7 SOLUTIONS Due: at the beginning of class on Wednesday, March 19, 2008 Text Exercises Chapter 9 problems #6(a-f), 10, 12 1 , 14, 16 1 , 22 2 , 24 3 1 You may do the analysis using SAS or Minitab, but must present the ANOVA table by hand, do not paste in extraneous computer output and state your conclusion in a clear and complete sentence. 2 You must also give the ANOVA table for this analysis. 3 You may use Minitab to construct the probability plot 9.6 a. 3.69 b. 4.82 c. 6.63 d. 10.29 e. 3.10 f. 0.95 9.10 Source df SS MS F Brand 4 39.2192 9.8048 15.32 Error 45 28.8 0.64 Total 49 68.0192 9.12 Source DF SS MS F P Factor 3 456.50 152.17 17.11 0.000 Error 14 124.50 8.89 Total 17 581.00 The p -value is clearly < 0.05, so we can conclude that there is a statistically significant difference in the yield of tomatoes among the soil salinity levels 9.14 The overall mean, () ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 6 2.58 6 2.63 6 2.13 6 2.41 6 2.49 2.448 30 x ++++ == SSTr = 6(2.58-2.448) 2 + 6(2.63-2.448) 2 + 6(2.13-2.448) 2 + 6(2.41-2.448) 2 + 6(2.49-2.448) 2 = 0.92928 SSE = SST – SSTr = 3.619 – 0.92928 = 2.68972 a.

For df 1 = 4, and df 2 = 25, the critical value of F for an α =0.05 test is 2.76 The F value calculated in this test does not exceed the critical value, we know our p - value is > 0.05, thus we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is no statistically significant difference in mean DNA content of the livers of rats fed the varius sugars
