1. The results of a one-way ANOVA are reported below.
 Source of variation SS df MS F Between groups 7.18 3 2.39 21.73 Within groups 48.07 453 0.11 Total 55.25 456
1. How many treatments are there in the study?
2. What is the total sample size?
3. What is the critical value of F if p = 0.05?
4. Write out the null hypothesis and the alternate hypothesis.
5. What is your decision regarding the null hypothesis?
6. Can we conclude any of the treatment means differ?

(a)

Number of treatments = k = 3 + 1 = 4

(b)

Total sample size = N = 456 + 1 = 457

(c)

For = 0.05,& Degrees of Freedom of numerator = 3 & Degrees of Freedom of denominator = 453, from Table:

Critical Value of F = 2.625

(d)

H0: Null Hypothesis:

HA: Alternative Hypothesis: (At least one mean is different from other 3 means)

(e) Since calculated value of F = 21.73is greater than critical value of F = 2.625, the difference is significant. Reject null hypothesis.

(f)

We can conclude that any of the treatment means differ.
