Intro to Stats: review question

Residual levels of DDT were measured in the blood of fish in three different estuaries. The results were as follows:

15 6 26
11 21 11
27 9 9
9 13 17

At the alpha = 0.05 level of significance, is there a statistically significant difference between the three estuaries in terms of mean residual levels of DDT? Formulate and test the appropriate hypotheses.

The null hypothesis is that the mean levels of ...
