10.2 – Using the information below, test the significance of the data:

A company has three manufacturing plants, and company leaders want to determine whether there is

a significant difference (use α = .01) in the average age of workers at the three locations. The

following data is the average age of five randomly selected workers at each plant. The data and the

partial results of a one-way ANOVA table are listed below:

10.3 – Using the information below, test the significance of the data:

A manager is concerned that one of his assembly lines is producing significantly more defective parts

than the other two assembly lines. He records the number of defective parts made by the three

assembly lines each day over the course of a week. The data and the partial results of a one-way

ANOVA table are listed below:

10.4 – Using the information below, test the significance of the data:

A group of paramedics does not believe that the number of emergency calls is the same for each shift.

To test their claim, they record the number of calls received during each shift for seven days. Based

on this data, can the paramedics conclude that the average number of calls is different between

shifts? The data and the partial results of a one-way ANOVA table are listed below:

A university is comparing the GPAs between the four sororities on campus. The GPAs for ten girls in

each sorority are shown below. Based on this data, can you conclude that there is a significant

difference in the average GPA between the four sororities on campus?
