Question

Where are the deer? Random samples of square-kilometer plots were taken in different ecological locations of a national park. The deer counts per square kilometer were recorded and are shown in the following table.

Mountain Brush |
Sagebrush Grassland |
Pinon Juniper |

29 | 24 | 10 |

27 | 59 | 3 |

25 | 16 | 2 |

27 | 24 | 6 |

Shall we reject or accept the claim that there is no difference in the mean number of deer per square kilometer in these different ecological locations? Use a 5% level of significance.

(a) What is the level of significance?

State the null and alternate hypotheses.

*H _{o}*:

*H _{o}*:

*H _{o}*:

*H _{o}*:

(b) Find *SS _{TOT}, SS_{BET}*, and

SS_{TOT} |
= | |

SS_{BET} |
= | |

SS_{W} |
= |

Find *d.f. _{BET}, d.f._{W},
MS_{BET}*, and

df_{BET} |
= | |

df_{W} |
= | |

MS_{BET} |
= | |

MS_{W} |
= |

Find the value of the sample *F* statistic. (Use 3 decimal
places.)

What are the degrees of freedom?

(numerator)

(denominator)

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

*P*-value > 0.100

0.050 < *P*-value <
0.100

0.025 < *P*-value < 0.050

0.010 < *P*-value < 0.025

0.001 < *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* = 0.05, we do not reject
*H*_{0}.

Since the *P*-value is less than or equal to the level of
significance at *α* = 0.05, we reject
*H*_{0}.

Since the *P*-value is greater than the level of
significance at *α* = 0.05, we reject
*H*_{0}.

Since the *P*-value is less than or equal to the level of
significance at *α* = 0.05, we do not reject
*H*_{0}.

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

At the 5% level of significance there is insufficient evidence to conclude that the means are not all equal.

At the 5% level of significance there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the means are not all equal.

At the 5% level of significance there is insufficient evidence to conclude that the means are all equal.

At the 5% level of significance there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the means are all equal.

(f) Make a summary table for your ANOVA test.

Wild irises are beautiful flowers found throughout the United
States, Canada, and northern Europe. This problem concerns the
length of the sepal (leaf-like part covering the flower) of
different species of wild iris. Data are based on information taken
from an article by R. A. Fisher in Annals of Eugenics
(Vol. 7, part 2, pp. 179 -188). Measurements of sepal length in
centimeters from random samples of Iris setosa (I),
Iris versicolor (II), and Iris virginica (III)
are as follows...
