Analyze the Data and Conduct a Hypothesis Test

  1. Compute the following:
    1. Fruit:
      1. \(\bar{x} =\) ______
      2. \(s_{x} =\) ______
      3. \(n =\) ______
    2. Vegetables:
      1. \(\bar{x} =\) ______
      2. \(s_{x} =\) ______
      3. \(n =\) ______
    3. Bread:
      1. \(\bar{x} =\) ______
      2. \(s_{x} =\) ______
      3. \(n =\) ______
  2. Find the following:
    1. \(df(\text{num}) =\) ______
    2. \(df(\text{denom}) =\) ______
  3. State the approximate distribution for the test.
  4. Test statistic: \(F =\) ______
  5. Sketch a graph of this situation. CLEARLY, label and scale the horizontal axis and shade the region(s) corresponding to the \(p\text{-value}\).
  6. \(p\text{-value} =\) ______
  7. Test at \(\alpha = 0.05\). State your decision and conclusion.
    1. Decision: Why did you make this decision?
    2. Conclusion (write a complete sentence).
    3. Based on the results of your study, is there a need to investigate any of the food groups’ prices? Why or why not?
