I need to know if this is right or left tailed and what the P-Value is!

For the following, Use the five-step approach to hypothesis testing found on page 8-16. It states. You can use excel to compute the data or you can do it by hand. The YouTube videos provided in the links will walk you through the steps to complete the following problems.

1. State the hypothesis and identify the claim.

H0:

H1:

1. Find the critical value and determine what error level to use. For all the problems on this homework use an alpha level of .05 Determine if the test is right tailed, left tailed or non-directional.
2. Compute the test Value It will be an ANOVA,
3. Make a decision to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis.
4. Summarize the results

Problem #2 You are a researcher who wants to know if there is a difference in the means of three different groups you have been working with to stop smoking. You have randomly selected 15 smokers and randomly placed them into three groups. Group one receives traditional treatment, pamphlets and videos on the health risks of smoking. Group two receives a fake treatment in the form of a daily pill, this is a placebo. The third group will receive motivational interviewing treatment within their weekly counseling sessions. All smokers in the three groups smoke on average 20 cigarettes a day. You hypothesize that there will be some difference between the three groups or within the three groups. Using an alpha level of .05, use the five-step approach to reject or fail to reject the HO: that all three groups will have equal means. Remember to report the P value as well. Critical values to determine the critical region can be found using table H on page 654. You must find the degrees of freedom for the numerator and the denominator. The following data shows how many cigarettes group participants smoked after eight weeks of treatment.

Group 1       Group 2       Group 3

20                 18                6

18                 20                3

21                 23                1

17                 19                2

19                 18                1
