A student team in a business statistics course performed a factorial experiment to investigate the time required for pain-relief tablets to dissolver in a glass of water. The two factors of interest were brand name (Equate, Kroger, or Alka-Seltzer) and temperature of the water (hot or cold). The experiment consisted of four replicates for each of the six factor combinations. The following data (stored in the Data below show the time a tablet took to dissolve ( in seconds) for the 24 tablets used in the experiment:

At the 0.05 level of significance,
a. Is there an interaction between brand of pain reliever and water temperature?

b. Is there an effect due to brand?

c. Is there an effect due to water temperature?

d. Plot the mean dissolving time for each brand for each water temperature.

e. What is the results of (a) through (d).
