This is an ANOVA table for the length of newborn babies at birth sorted into categories based on whether their mothers were heavy smokers (HS), medium smokers (MS), or non-smokers (NS) during their pregnancy. Specify the distribution of the test statistic under the null hypothesis. What is the pooled estimate of the variance?


Here is the data used to create the ANOVA table:
