Is there a difference in mean SBP among treatments? Run the appropriate test at =0.05.
Step 1. Set up hypotheses and determine level of significance
H_{0}: _{}= _{2}= _{3}
H_{1}: Means are not all equal =0.05
Step 2. Select the appropriate test statistic. F=MSB/MSE.
Step 3. Set up decision rule.
df_{1}=k1=31=2 and df_{2}=Nk=183=15. Reject H_{0} if F > 3.68.
Step 4. Compute the test statistic.

n_{1}=6 
n_{2}=6 
n_{3}=6 
_{1}= 122.7 
_{2}= 146.2 
_{3}= 121.0 
If we pool all N=18 observations, the overall mean is = 130.0.
We can now compute .
SSB = 6(122.7130.0)^{2} + 6(146.2130.0)^{2 }+ 6(121.0130.0)^{2}
SSB = 2380.4.
Next, .

We can now construct the ANOVA table.

Step 5. Conclusion.
We reject H_{0} because 21.1 > 3.68. We have statistically significant evidence at =0.05 to show that there is a difference in mean systolic blood pressure among treatments.

Do the following problems using SPSS and provide a copy of the ANOVA table for each as your answer:
PLUS the following problems:
1. A manufacturer wants to know which new coffee sells the best and distributes 3 types (BlueLabel, GreenLabel and Red Label) to 6 of his stores. After letting customers taste the three types, the number of pounds purchased of each type of coffee on one day are recorded for the six stores. Perform an ANOVA using SPSS to determine whether there is a significant difference in sales.

Three topical antibiotics are tested to see how quickly they eliminate a rash in 4 people who have a history of repeated rashes of this type.
The number of days to eliminate the rash in the 4 people is given in the table below:
