The effect of five different ingredients (A, B, C, D, and E) on the reaction time of a
chemical process is being studied. Each batch of new material is only large enough
to permit five runs to be made. Furthermore, each run requires approximately

1
2

hours, so only five runs can be made in one day. The experimenter decides to run the
experiment as a Latin square so that day and batch effects may be systematically
controlled. She obtains the data that follow:

10. An engineer is studying the mileage performance characteristics of five types of

gasoline additives. In the road test he wishes to use cars as blocks; however, because
of a time constraint, he must use an incomplete block design. He runs the balanced
