On the following random samples of social class, test the null hypothesis that neighborliness does not vary by social class. (Note: Higher scores indicate greater neighborliness.) ANS: F =2.72 (observed); 3.49 (critical), df = 3, 12 .05 LOS.

State the research problem

State the null and the alternative hypotheses (written and symbolically)

State the decision rule? (.05 LOS)

Calculate the F value

What is the decision?

Supply the source table to support your findings.

Ans:

We want to know if there is difference in neighborliness depending on the social class.

H0: There is no difference in neighborliness depending on the social class.

Ha:There is difference in neighborliness depending on the social class.

critical F value=FINV(0.05,3,12)=3.49

F value=2.72

(refer below anova table)

Decisio:

Fail to reject the null hypothesis.(as F<3.49)

Conclusion:

There is not sufficient evidence to conclude that neighborliness does not vary by social class
