Analysis of Variance

Analysis of variance and f-values

1. In an analysis of variance, we also get an F value. This value is based on the SSA(SS total), SSE, and SST values. Assume that we have three columns (or treatments), 5 values per column and SS Total = 39,000, SSE = 35,000. Calculate the following: MSE MST For the above problem, what is the value of F? If the calculat
