Must create a clear explanation.

Tom is a resident of Massachusetts for the last 5 years. He wants to move to either Connecticut or New Jersey where the
median income is higher than Massachusetts. The table below shows the median income for three States for the last
five years. Prepare an ANOVA test using Excel and find out whether or not the median income among three States is
statistically significant. (Make sure your computer has Data Analysis option. If not, go to Tools,click Add-Ins,
check Access links and click ) PoPoints
