Use the information given in the paragraph below to answer the next six questions. Astral Airlines recently introduced a nonstop flight between Houston and Chicago. The vice president of marketing for Astral decided to run a test to see whether Astral’s passenger load was similar to that of its two major competitors. Nine daytime flights were picked at random from each of the three airlines and the percent of unfilled seats on each flight was as follows: Astral Competitor1 Competitor2 10 12 15 14 9 10 12 8 15 10 9 8 7 11 13 13 10 9 11 12 8 8 7 11 12 11 10 The vice president used the data to test the claim, at the .05 significance level, that there difference in the mean percent of unfilled seats among Astral and its two major competito results of the ANOVA (conducted at the α = .05 level) are shown in the partially filled table below.
