1. The following hypotheses are given:

H 0 : σ 12 = σ 22
H 0 : σ 12 ≠ σ 22
A random sample of eight observations from the first population resulted in a
standard deviation of 10.A random sample of six observations from the second
population resulted in standard deviation of 7. At the 0.02 significance level, is there
a difference in the variation of the two populations?
2. Random sample of five were selected from each of three populations. The sum of
squares total was 100. The sum of squares due to the treatments was 40.
