Three racquetball players, one from each skill level, have been randomly selected from the membership list of a health club. Using the same ball, each person hits five serves, one with each of five racquets, and using the racquets in a random order. Each serve is clocked with a radar gun, and the results are shown here. With player skill level as a blocking variable, use the 0.025 level of significance in determining whether the treatment effects of the five racquets could all be zero. Using the 0.01 level, evaluate the effectiveness of the blocking variable (use data file xr12052). See attachment.
The solution provides step-by-step method for the calculation of ANOVA test to evaluate the effectiveness of the blocking variable. Formula for the calculation and interpretations of the results are also included. See attachments for details.
