    Obtain the critical values of the F distribution for the following situations:

    (a). F .01, numerator df = 8, denominator
    df = 6
    (b). F .01, numerator df = 5, denominator df = 120
    (c). F .05, numerator df = 12, denominator df = 24

    We will need a table of percentage points of the F distribution (often referred to the F Table). Most Statistics texts have such tables located near the back of the book. Otherwise, your professor has probably supplied you with a copy. Either way, we will be ...
