Main effects vs interaction-help needed!
I have a MINITAB printout I was hoping someone could help me with. My question is- from the table below how do i distinguish between a main effect and an interaction?
Q. Three drug treatments are compared at three sites. The treatments consist of two dosages (low and high dose) of an experimental drug and a control drug. The results were analysed by two-way ANOVA with interaction. The ANOVA is shown below.
