Analysis of Variance

Solve the following one-way ANOVA problems

See attached for proper formatting Assignment 2: Mixed Problems 1. In a one-way ANOVA, if the test is conducted and the null hypothesis is rejected, what does this indicate? (2 pts) A. All the population means are equal B. At least one of the population means are different C. The normal distribution should b

Using an ANOVA: Bumper Test

Question: In a bumper test, three types of autos were deliberately crashed into a barrier at 5 mph, and the resulting damage (in dollars) was estimated. Five test vehicles of each type were crashed, with the results shown below. The research question being asked in this case is as follows: Are the mean crash damages the same for

Explanation: ANOVA and hypothesis testing of means

Give an example of how you could/would apply a hypothesis test using ANOVA to compare more than two independent population means? State the null and alternate hypotheses in both words and symbols.You do not need to complete the entire five step process using actual numbers.

Statistics: ANOVA and P-Value

1. Discuss the concept of ANOVA and its applicability in the workplace. 2. Define the following terms related to an ANOVA in terms that the everyday person can understand, and then discuss why you would perform an ANOVA rather than a t-test. + Sum of squares among (SSA) + Sums of squares error (SSE) + Means square among

Two way ANOVA for catalysts delivery time

Oxnard Petro, Ltd., has three suppliers of catalysts. Orders are placed with each supplier every 15 working days, or about once every 3 weeks. The delivery time (days) is recorded for each order over 1 year. Are the main effects significant? Is there an interaction? Deliveries2 Supplier 1 Supplier 2 Supplier 3 Qtr 1 12 10 16

ANOVA: Can the null hypothesis be rejected?

For the following data from independent samples, could the null hypothesis that the population means are equal be rejected at the 0.05 level? Use the data provided in the attached files.

ANOVA: finding and interpreting the p-value

In a one-way ANOVA, there are three independent samples, with n1 = 8, n2 =10 and n3 = 7. The calculated f-statistic is f = 3.95. At the 0.05 level of significance, what conclusion would be reached? Based on the F distribution tables, what is the most accurate statement that can be made about the p-value for this test?

ANOVA: Hypothesis tests and the ANOVA table

Cris Turlock owns and manages a small business in San Francisco, CA. The business provides breakfast and brunch food, via carts parked along sidewalks, to people in the business district of the city. Being an experienced businessperson, Cris provides incentives for the salespeople operating the food carts. This year, she pl

Two way ANOVA..

In a two-way ANOVA experiment, factor A is operating on 3 levels, factor B is operating on 2 levels, and there are 2 replications per cell. If MSA / MSE = 5.35, MSB / MSE = 5.72 and MSAB / MSE = 6.75, and using the 0.05 level of significance, what conclusions would be reached, regarding the respective null hypotheses for this e

Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Blocking Variable

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 pla

ANOVA: degrees of freedom and F statistic

Please see attached file for full question and ANOVA table. 1. For each of the following situations, state how large the F statistic needs to be for rejection of the null hypothesis at the 5% level. Sketch each distribution and indicate the region where you would reject. a). The main effect for the first factor in a 3 x 5

Nonparamettic ANOVA for Sample Mean

The National Turkey Association wants to experiment with three different feed mixtures for very young turkeys. Since no experience exists regarding the three mixtures, no assumptions can be made about the distribution of weights. The Kruskal-Wallis test must be used to test whether the turkeys are equal in weight after eating th

ANOVA for Bumper Test for 3 Types of Autos

In a bumper test, three types of autos were deliberately crashed into a barrier at 5 mph, and the resulting damage (in dollars) was estimated. Five test vehicles of each type were crashed, with the results shown below. Research question: Are the mean crash damages the same for these three vehicles? State the decision rule for &#

Requirements for an ANOVA test

Describe the requirements that must be met before an ANOVA test can be used. Discuss what the researcher should do if one of these requirements is not met.

Two-Way Analysis of Variance

An experimenter has investigated the effects of cigarette smoking on learning. Two levels of the smoking variable were used (smoked, did not smoke). There are also two levels of the learning variable (intentional learning and incidental learning). 1) Practice the two-way between-subjects ANOVA on these data. 2) Interpre

Using ANOVA to Test Productivity Levels

The results shown below are mean productivity measurements (average number of assemblies completed per hour) for a random sample of workers at each of three plants. The research question is: Are the mean hourly productivity levels the same for workers in these three plants? Please compute the solution in an Excel document or ano

The values in the table are measured maximum breaths of male Egyptian skulls from time periods. Changing in head shape over time suggest that interbreading occurred with immigrant populations. Use a 0.05 level significance to test the claim that the different time periods do not all have the same mean. 4000BC 1850BC
