(d) (7 pts) Independence of measurements across and within groups: trees were sampled randomly, and were experimentally chosen to be burnt and in- vaded by beetles. It can be pointed out that if trees are located in regions that are far apart, then the region might affect the genetic background or the presence/absence of beetles and raise con- cerns about this independence assumption. But this assumption seems to be met from the avail- able information. Normality of measurements within each group: Having a qq-plot of residuals would make it easy to see, but the dotplots show no outlier, no appar- ent skew, and makes us think normality probably holds here. Equal variances: seems okay. Sample standard deviations are quite similar (the largest is no larger than twice the smallest). Furthermore, Levene’s test supports this assumption: F = 0 . 21 on 3 and 34 df gives p > 0 . 25 and leads us to accept σ 1 = σ 2 = σ 3 = σ 4 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
