Hypothesis Test for Measuring Male Egyptian Skulls

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.

Do I reject the hypothesis that the means are the same: at least one of the means is different? Or accept the hypothesis that the means are all the same?

Solution Summary

The solution examines the measurements of maximum breaths of male Egyptian skulls from different time periods. The solution examines the change in head shape over time and its indication of interbreeding.
