What is the computed value of F?

Do you reject the null?

To Determine the computed F value:

• Compute the mean square error for both for treatment and error. (We know that the latter is 558).

• The mean square for error is 1068/15 = 71.2

• Thus, the computed F value which is the ratio of the mean square error for treatment to mean square error for random variation = 558/71.2 = 7.84

Reject H0 - there is a difference in treatment means

Since the critical F value for 2 and 15 degrees of freedom is 3.68 and the computed F value is 7.84, the hypothesis that the means are equal should be rejected.

What is a scatter diagram?

A chart that portrays the relationship between two variables.

13. What does the sign (- or +) mean regarding correlation?

The sign of the correlation coefficient (+ , -) defines the direction of the relationship, either positive or negative. A positive correlation coefficient means that as the value of one variable increases, the value of the other variable increases; as one decreases the other decreases. A negative correlation coefficient indicates that as one variable increases, the other decreases, and vice-versa.

TRUE or FALSE?

The coefficient of correlation, r, close to 0 (says, 0.08) shows that the relationship between two variables is quite weak.
