Introduction In the previous topic, we compared the means of two groups. We next extend those methods to the comparison of means of a quantitative response variable for several groups. The method of comparing means of the various groups is called the analysis of variance.

Anatomy of F-test The analysis of variance is a method used to compare the means of a quantitative response variable for several groups. R.A.Fisher developed this method in the 1920s, primarily for data from agriculture experiments. The heart of this analysis is a significance test, using the F-distribution, for detecting evidence of differences among the population means.
F-test: Notations g denotes the number of groups. The means of the response variable for the g populations, are μ 1 , μ 2 ,…, μ g. The analysis of variance is an
