Question

An experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of species (factor A, with I = 4) and grade (factor B, with J = 3) on breaking strength of wood specimens. One observation was made for each species—grade combination—resulting in SSA = 441.0, SSB = 426.6, and SSE = 121.4. Assume that an additive model is appropriate.

(a) Test H0: α1 = α2 = α3 = α4 = 0 (no differences in true average strength due to species) versus Ha: at least one αi ≠ 0 using a level 0.05 test.

Calculate the test statistic. (Round your answer to two decimal places.) f = ??

What can be said about the P-value for the test? Select a choice.

A) P-value > 0.100

B) 0.050 < P-value < 0.100

C) 0.010 < P-value < 0.050

D) 0.001 < P-value < 0.010

E) P-value < 0.001

State the conclusion in the problem context. Select a choice.

A) Reject H0. The data does not suggest any difference in the true average strength due to species.

B) Fail to reject H0. The data suggests that true average strength of at least one of the species is different from the others.

C) Fail to reject H0. The data does not suggest any difference in the true average strength due to species.

D) Reject H0. The data suggests that true average strength of at least one of the species is different from the others.

(b) Test H0: β1 = β2 = β3 = 0 (no differences in true average strength due to grade) versus Ha: at least one βj ≠ 0 using a level 0.05 test.

Calculate the test statistic. (Round your answer to two decimal places.) f = ??

What can be said about the P-value for the test? Select a choice.

A) P-value > 0.100

B) 0.050 < P-value < 0.100

C) 0.010 < P-value < 0.050

D) 0.001 < P-value < 0.010

E) P-value < 0.001

State the conclusion in the problem context. Select a choice.

A) Reject H0. The data does not suggest any difference in the true average strength due to grade.

B) Reject H0. The data suggests that true average strength of at least one of the grades is different from the others.

C) Fail to reject H0. The data suggests that true average strength of at least one of the grades is different from the others.

D) Fail to reject H0. The data does not suggest any difference in the true average strength due to grade.

Source | SS | df | MS | F |

A | 441 | 3 | 147.000 | 7.265 |

B | 426.6 | 2 | 213.300 | 10.542 |

error | 121.4 | 6 | 20.233 | |

total | 989 | 11 |

a) test statistic f =7.27

C) 0.010 < P-value < 0.050

D) Reject H0. The data suggests that true average strength of at least one of the species is different from the others.

b) test statistic =10.54

C) 0.010 < P-value < 0.050

B) Reject H0. The data suggests that true average strength of at least one of the grades is different from the others.

An experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of
species (factor A, with I = 4) and grade
(factor B, with J = 3) on breaking
strength of wood specimens. One observation was made for each
species—grade combination—resulting in SSA = 449.0, SSB = 422.6,
and SSE = 129.4. Assume that an additive model is appropriate.
(a) Test H0: α1

Tensile strength tests were carried out on two different grades
of wire rod, resulting in the accompanying data.
Grade
Sample Size
Sample Mean (kg/mm^2)
sample SD
AISI 1064
m=126
x bar = 102.1
s1 = 1.2
AISI 1078
n = 126
y bar = 128.5
s2 = 2.0
(a) Does the data provide compelling evidence for concluding
that true average strength for the 1078 grade exceeds that for the
1064 grade by more than 10 kg/mm2? Test the appropriate
hypotheses...

As the population ages, there is increasing concern about
accident-related injuries to the elderly. An article reported on an
experiment in which the maximum lean angle—the furthest a subject
is able to lean and still recover in one step—was determined for
both a sample of younger females (21–29 years) and a sample of
older females (67–81 years). The following observations are
consistent with summary data given in the article:

Six samples of each of four types of cereal grain grown in a
certain region were analyzed to determine thiamin content,
resulting in the following data (µg/g). Wheat 5.1 4.6 6.0 6.0 6.7
5.7 Barley 6.5 8.0 6.1 7.5 5.8 5.5 Maize 5.7 4.6 6.4 4.9 6.0 5.3
Oats 8.2 6.0 7.9 7.1 5.4 7.1 Does this data suggest that at least
two of the grains differ with respect to true average thiamin
content? Use a level α = 0.05...

The following data refers to yield of tomatoes (kg/plot) for
four different levels of salinity. Salinity level here refers to
electrical conductivity (EC), where the chosen levels were EC =

A comparison between species: Biologists
comparing the gestation period of two newly discovered species of
frog collected data from 13 frogs of species A and 22 frogs of
species B. Species A exhibited an average gestation period of 13
days with a standard deviation of 3.4 days while species B had a
gestation period of 17 days and a standard deviation of 2.6 days.
The researchers want to know whether the average lengths of the
gestational periods differ between the...
