ANOVA for single-factor experiment

Johnson's Service Center has devised three potential options available to preferred customers who redeem coupons and buy at least 10 gallons of fuel when they stop in. Option A is a flat 3 cents off each gallon. Option B is a combination of 2 cents off plus another $1 discount on the regular price of a $5 deluxe car wash. Option C is a $2 discount on the same $5 deluxe car wash but no reduction in the fuel purchase. The owner, Harold Johnson, ran each option on three different two-week trial periods and tracked daily sales receipts from those customers who redeemed their coupons. Results are shown in the table below:

Option A Option B Option C

513 536 516
521 511 500
511 528 435
