    A University employment office wants to compare the time taken by graduates with 3 different majors to find their first jobs after graduation. The following tables lists the time (in days) taken to find their first full time job after graduation for a random sample of 8 business majors, 7 computer science majors & 6 engineering majors who graduated in May 2005.

    Business Computer Engineering
    Science
    36 56 26
    62 13 51
    35 24 63
    80 28 46
    27 47 78
    48 44 34
    76 20
    44

    At the 5% significance level, can you conclude that the mean time taken to find their first job for all 2005 graduates in these fields is the same?
