For each of the following situations, give the degrees of
freedom for the group (DFG), for error (DFE), and for the total
(DFT). State the null and alternative hypotheses,
H0 and Ha, and give the
numerator and denominator degrees of freedom for the F
statistic.
(a) A poultry farmer is interested in reducing the cholesterol
level in his marketable eggs. He wants to compare two different
cholesterol-lowering drugs added to the hen’s standard diet as well
as an all-vegetarian diet. He assigns 45 of his hens to each of the
three treatments.

(b) A researcher is interested in students’ opinions regarding an
additional annual fee to support non-income-producing varsity
sports. Students were asked to rate their acceptance of this fee on
a seven-point scale. She received 98 responses, of which 31 were
from students who attend varsity football or basketball games only,
16 were from students who also attend other varsity competitions,
and 51 who did not attend any varsity games.

(c) A professor wants to evaluate the effectiveness of his teaching
assistants. In one class period, the 45 students were randomly
divided into three equal-sized groups, and each group was taught
power calculations from one of the assistants. At the beginning of
the next class, each student took a quiz on power calculations, and
these scores were compared.
