    Good day!
    I have an exame in just one day and I try to finetune my statistic knowhow. But one thing I don´t know, and that is how to calculate a p-value when you’re working with ANOVA.
    Here’s the question.
    What is the P-value for the difference between the mean life span of the different type of batteries?

    MSA=875,783MSW=194,025  so F=4,51377And df1=3 and df2=16 But I don’t how to continue for the P-value.in the answer sheet they give 0,0178Could someone please help, it saves me a lot of frustration.
    (and I apologize for my bad English, I’m Dutch)
    GreetingsBart

    Go to the Fdist in Excel with a value of 4,51377 and fill in df of 3 and 16. You will see the value you referenced.
    ANOVA uses the F distribution, Fdist is for when you have a calculated value and you want to know the probability.

    Thanx for the quick answer
    But is it also possible to calculate by hand? Because they asked in a previous exam when there was no Excel available. We only have a graphic computer (TI-84)

    You can interprolate from an F table.

    I can’t recall ever calculating the p-value by hand. (Used a table with interpolation as Stan mentioned, or obtained directly from software application). Seems like the technique they want you to use should be in the class notes.
