A manufacturer of outdoor brass lamps and mailboxes has received numerous complaints about premature corrosion. The manufacturer has identified the cause of the problem as the low-quality lacquer used to coat the brass. He decides to replace his current lacquer supplier with one of five possible alternatives. To judge which is best, he uses each of the five lacquers to coat 25 brass mailboxes and puts all 125 mailboxes outside. He records, for each, the number of days until the first sign of corrosion is observed.
a. Is there sufficient evidence at the 1% significance level to allow the manufacturer to conclude that differences exist between the five lacquers?
b. What are the required conditions for the test conducted in part (a)?
c. Does it appear that the required conditions of the test in part (a) are satisfied?
