Question

There is an archaeological study area located in southwestern
New Mexico. Potsherds are broken pieces of prehistoric Native
American clay vessels. One type of painted ceramic vessel is called
*Mimbres classic black-on-white*. At three different sites,
the number of such sherds was counted in local dwelling
excavations.

Site I |
Site II |
Site III |

62 | 29 | 17 |

39 | 18 | 34 |

27 | 54 | 74 |

17 | 60 | 28 |

81 | 18 | |

52 | 12 | |

23 |

Shall we reject or not reject the claim that there is no difference in population mean Mimbres classic black-on-white sherd counts for the three sites? Use a 1% level of significance.

(a) What is the level of significance?

State the null and alternate hypotheses.

*H*_{0}: *μ*_{1} =
*μ*_{2} = *μ*_{3};
*H*_{1}: Exactly two means are
equal.*H*_{0}: *μ*_{1} =
*μ*_{2} = *μ*_{3};
*H*_{1}: Not all the means are
equal. *H*_{0}:
*μ*_{1} = *μ*_{2} =
*μ*_{3}; *H*_{1}: All three means are
different.*H*_{0}: *μ*_{1} =
*μ*_{2} = *μ*_{3};
*H*_{1}: At least two means are equal.

(b) Find *SS*_{TOT},
*SS*_{BET}, and
*SS*_{W} and check that
*SS*_{TOT} =
*SS*_{BET} +
*SS*_{W}. (Round your answers to three
decimal places.)

SS_{TOT} |
= | |

SS_{BET} |
= | |

SS_{W} |
= |

Find *d.f.*_{BET},
*d.f.*_{W},
*MS*_{BET}, and
*MS*_{W}. (Round your answers for
*MS _{BET}*, and

d.f._{BET} |
= | |

d.f._{W} |
= | |

MS_{BET} |
= | |

MS_{W} |
= |

Find the value of the sample *F* statistic. (Round your
answer to two decimal places.)

What are the degrees of freedom?

d.f._{N} |
= |

d.f._{D} |
= |

(c) Find the *P*-value of the sample test statistic.

*P*-value > 0.1000.050 < *P*-value <
0.100 0.025 < *P*-value <
0.0500.010 < *P*-value < 0.0250.001 <
*P*-value < 0.010*P*-value < 0.001

(d) Based on your answers in parts (a) to (c), will you reject or
fail to reject the null hypothesis?

Since the *P*-value is greater than the level of
significance at *α* = 0.01, we do not reject
*H*_{0}.Since the *P*-value is less than or
equal to the level of significance at *α* = 0.01, we reject
*H*_{0}. Since the
*P*-value is greater than the level of significance at
*α* = 0.01, we reject *H*_{0}.Since the
*P*-value is less than or equal to the level of significance
at *α* = 0.01, we do not reject *H*_{0}.

(e) Interpret your conclusion in the context of the
application.

At the 1% level of significance there is insufficient evidence to conclude that the means are not all equal.At the 1% level of significance there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the means are all equal. At the 1% level of significance there is insufficient evidence to conclude that the means are all equal.At the 1% level of significance there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the means are not all equal.

(f) Make a summary table for your ANOVA test. (Round your answers
for SS to three decimal places, your MS and *F* Ratio to two
decimal places, and your *P*-value to four decimal
places.)

Answer #1

(d) Since the P-value is greater than the level of significance at α = 0.01, we do not reject H0.

(e) At the 1% level of significance there is insufficient evidence to conclude that the means are not all equal.
