1 WEEK 6 HOMEWORK 12-22. A physician who specializes in weight control has three different diets she recommends. As an experiment, she randomly selected 15 patients and then assigned 5 to each diet. After three weeks the following weight losses, in pounds, were noted. At the .05 significance level, can she conclude that there is a difference in the mean amount of weight loss among the three diets?

We can conclude that there is a difference in the mean amount of weight loss among the three diets 12-28. Three assembly lines are used to produce a certain component for an airliner. To examine the production rate, a random sample of six hourly periods is chosen for each assembly line and the number

2 of components produced during these periods for each line is recorded. The output from a statistical software package is: Groups Count Summary Sum Average Variance Line A 6 250 41.66667 0.266667 Line B 6 260 43.33333 0.666667 Line C 6 249 41.5 0.7 ANOVA Source of Variation SS df MS F P-value Between Groups 12.33333 2 6.166667 11.32653 0.000101 Within Groups 8.166667 12 0.544444 Total 20.5 17 a. Use a .01 level of significance to test if there is a difference in the mean production of the three assembly lines. Since p-value in the table is 0.000101, which is less than significant level 0.01, we can reject null hypothesis. Conclusion: there is a difference in the mean production of the three assembly lines.
