# Practice: ANOVA

Summary: This module provides a practice on F Distribution and One-Way ANOVA as a part of Collaborative Statistics collection (col10522) by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean.

## Student Learning Outcome

• The student will conduct a One-Way ANOVA hypothesis test.

## Given

Suppose a group is interested in determining whether teenagers obtain their drivers licenses at approximately the same average age across the country. Suppose that the following data are randomly collected from five teenagers in each region of the country. The numbers represent the age at which teenagers obtained their drivers licenses.

Northeast South West Central East
16.3 16.9 16.4 16.2 17.1
16.1 16.5 16.5 16.6 17.2
16.4 16.4 16.6 16.5 16.6
16.5 16.2 16.1 16.4 16.8
x ¯ = x ¯ = size 12{ {overline {x}} ={}} {} ________ ________ ________ ________ ________
s 2 = s 2 = size 12{s rSup { size 8{2} } ={}} {} ________ ________ ________ ________ ________

## Hypothesis

### Exercise 1

State the hypotheses.

HoHo size 12{H rSub { size 8{O} } } {}:

HaHa size 12{H rSub { size 8{a} } } {}:

## Data Entry

Enter the data into your calculator or computer.

### Exercise 2

degrees of freedom - numerator: df(n)=df(n)= size 12{ ital "df" $$n$$ ={}} {}

#### Solution

d f ( 1 ) = 4 df(1)=4

### Exercise 3

degrees of freedom - denominator: df(d)=df(d)= size 12{ ital "df" $$d$$ ={}} {}

#### Solution

d f ( 2 ) = 15 df(2)=15

### Exercise 4

F test statistic =

#### Solution

Test statistic = F = 4.22=F=4.22

p-valuep-value =

0.017

## Decisions and Conclusions

State the decisions and conclusions (in complete sentences) for the following preconceived levels of αα size 12{α} {} .

### Exercise 6

α=0.05α=0.05 size 12{α=0 "." "05"} {}

Decision:

Conclusion:

### Exercise 7

α = 0 . 01 α = 0 . 01 size 12{α=0 "." "01"} {}

Decision:

Conclusion:

#### Definition of a lens

##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
