Hello all,

I have been working on this problem for 3 or 4 days and I am not sure what I am doing wrong when I am calculating F critical value.

Would someone please walk me through the problem?

Question:

Here is my data set.

BR 1

5, 9.5, 6, 7.3, 6.6, 7.9,

BR 2

8.2, 6.7, 6.9 , 7.2, 7.5, 8.6

BR 3

10, 7.5, 8.7, 8.4 , 7, 7.8

BR 4

7, 8.5, 6.7, 7.3, 7.2, 6.2

A

nd I am trying to calculate F Critical Value at 95% confidence.

These are all the calculations I have that are right.

What is the SUM of SQUARES (SS) for FACTOR? 5.1746

What is the SUM of SQUARES (SS) for ERROR? 23.6717

What is the SUM of SQUARES (SS) TOTAL? 28.8462

What is the Degrees of Freedom (Df) for FACTOR? 3.0000

What is the Degrees of Freedom (Df) for the ERROR term? 20.0000

What is the Degrees of Freedom (Df) TOTAL? 23.0000

What is the MEAN SQUARED (MS) for FACTOR? 1.7248

What is the MEAN SQUARED (MS) for the ERROR term? 1.1836

What is the F Calculated value? 1.5099

Thanks for the help.
