The Jacobs Chemical Company wants to estimate the mean time (minutes) required to mix a batch of material on machines produced by three different manufacturers. To limit the cost of testing, four batches of material were mixed on machines produced by each of the three manufacturers. The times needed to mix the material follow.
a. Write a multiple regression equation that can be used to analyze the data.
b. What are the best estimates of the coefficients in your regression equation?
c. In terms of the regression equation coefficients, what hypotheses must we test to see whether the mean time to mix a batch of material is the same for all three manufacturers?
d. For an α = .05 level of significance, what conclusion should be drawn?
