Time: 23:59 Hours (Midnight)Instructions to attempt assignment:
• You can use/make a single table for all necessary computations.
• Use calculator for calculations.
• Write the complete formulas and all steps, wherever necessary.
• For writing symbols, use MathType software. If you already did not download it, get it from here.
• Make your own attempt, any copy/past; cheating from other student/website may result in ZERO marks and/or assignment cancelation.Question1:
Varieties A B C 23 18 16 26 28 25 20 17 12 17 21 14
An Experiment was conducted compare the yields of three varieties of potatoes. Each variety was assigned at random to equal size plots, four times. The yields were as follows:Test the hypothesis that the three verities of potatoes are not different in the yielding capabilities.
Question2:
Source of variation Sum of squares Degrees of freedom Mean square F B/W treatments 4 19.860 6.90 Error Total 137.040 24
Complete the ANOVA table.

Question no. 1:
Test the hypothesis that the mean of a normal population with known variance 70 is 31, if a sample of size 13 gave x ̅ = 34. Let the alternative hypothesis be H1: µ > 31, and let α = 0.10.Questions no. 2:
Explain in detail why it is not a good statistical procedure to perform several ttest on pairs of means , when several means are to be compared. Suggest the alternative statistical procedure and also give its assumptions.
