Topic: Oneway ANOVA 1986 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 44.
The Excel/MegaStat output given above summarizes the results of a oneway analysis of
variance in an attempt to compare the performance characteristics of four brands of vacuum
cleaners. The response variable is the amount of time it takes to clean a specific size room
with a specific amount of dirt.
At a significance level of .05, the null hypothesis for the ANOVA F test is rejected. Analysis
of the Tukey's simultaneous confidence intervals shows that at the significance level
(experimentwise) of .05 we would conclude that
A. all four brands of vacuum cleaners differ from each other in terms of their performance.
B. brand 1 differs from brand 2, and brand 2 differs from brand 3 while the rest of the vacuum
cleaner pairs do not differ from each other in terms of their performance.
C. brand 1 differs from brand 2, and brand 3 differs from brands 1, 2 and 4, while the rest of
the vacuum cleaner pairs do not differ from each other in terms of their performance.
D. only brand 3 differs from the other three brands (brands 1,2 and 3), while the rest of the
vacuum cleaner pairs do not differ from each other in terms of their performance.
E. none of the four brands of vacuum cleaners differ from each other in terms of their
performance. AACSB: Reflective Thinking
