In a completely randomized (one-way) analysis of variance problem with c groups and a total of n observations in all groups, the variance between groups is equal to: A. (Total sum of squares) - (Sum of squares within columns) B. (Sum of squares between columns)/(c-1) C. (Total sum of squares) - [(Sum of squares within columns)/(n-c)] D. [(Total sum of squares)/(n-1)] - [(Sum of squares between columns)/(c-1)] 29.
