An article by J. Puranen of the Department of Statistics, University of Helsinki, discussed a classic study on several variables of seven different species of fish caught in Lake Laengelmaevesi, Finland. On the WeissStats CD, we present the data on weight (in grams) and length (in centimeters) from the nose to the beginning of the tail for four of the seven species. Perform the required parts for both the weight and length data.
Use the technology of your choice to do the following tasks.
a. Obtain individual normal probability plots and the standard deviations of the samples.
b. Perform a residual analysis.
c. Use your results from parts (a) and (b) to decide whether conducting a one-way ANOVA test on the data is reasonable. If so, also do parts (d) and (e).
d. Use a one-way ANOVA test to decide, at the 5% significance level, whether the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that a difference exists among the means of the populations from which the samples were taken.
e. Interpret your results from part (d).
