# Question: A sporting goods manufacturing company wanted to compare the distance traveled by golf balls produced using four different designs.

Question: A sporting goods manufacturing company wanted to compare the distance traveled by golf balls produced using four different designs. Ten balls were manufactured with each design and were brought to the local golf course for the club professional to test. The order in which the balls were hit with the same club from the first tee was randomized so that the pro did not know which type of ball was being hit. All 40 balls were hit in a short period of time, during which the environmental conditions were essentially the same. The results (distance traveled in yards) for the four designs are as follows, answer the following questions. Assume all balls produced in four different designs are normally distributed and balls were selected randomly and independently.

MAIN QUESTIONS

1. At the .05 level of significance, is it appropriate to perform an ANOVA test? Give your justification.

2. At the .05 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the mean distances traveled by the golf balls with different designs?

3. If the results in 1 indicate there is statistical significant differences on mean distances traveled by the golf balls with different designs, what designs differ in mean distances?

4. What golf ball design should the manufacturing manager choose?

b. 2.7

c. .11828

d. 0

By referring question 10’s result, what conclusions can you draw from?

Select one:

a. The mean distances of all designs are same, we should go further to investigate which design is different

b. The mean distances of all designs are same, there is no further information that can be provided.

c. The mean distances of all designs are different, there is no further information that can be provided.

d. The mean distances of all designs are different, we should go further to investigate which design is different
