Question

Supermarkets often place similar types of cereal on the same supermarket shelf. The shelf placement for 77 cereals was recorded as well their sugar content. Does sugar content vary by shelf? Here’s a boxplot and an ANOVA table.
a) What kind of design or study is this?
b) What are the null and alternative hypotheses?
c) What does the ANOVA table say about the null hypothesis? (Be sure to report this in terms of sugar content and shelf placement.)
d) Can we conclude that cereals on shelf 2 have a different mean sugar content than cereals on shelf 3? Can we conclude that cereals on shelf 2 have a different mean sugar content than cereals on shelf 1? What can we conclude?
e) To check for significant differences between the shelf means, we can use a Bonferroni test, whose results are shown at the top of the next column. For each pair of shelves, the difference is shown along with its standard error and significance level. What does it say about the questions in part d?
