Comments: 1) This problem was given to show that the two assumptions (equal variance and unequal variance) come out the same or very close. 2) 3 points are off if the degree of freedom is not right. 2) Test data on the deformation and hardness of a certain type of steel have are given in the table below: Deformation H (hardness, (mm) kg mm2) 6 68 11 65 13 53 22 10 28 37 35 32 a) Graph the data on a two ­dimensional plot.
