Question 3
Using onefactor ANOVA with 30 observations we find at a= .05 that we cannot reject the null hypothesis of equal means. We increase the sample size from 30 observations to 60 observations and obtain the same value for the sample F test statistic. Which is correct?
Answer
We might now be able to reject the null hypothesis
We surely must reject H0 for 60 observations
C.We cannot reject H0 since we obtained the same Fvalue
It is impossible to get the same Fvalue for n = 60 as for n = 30
