Enter the data and perform the Pearson's correlation on data and report the results. r = ?
2. Using the data in problem 1, conduct an ANOVA to identify whether the grief experienced is significantly different between men and women. (Hint: Use single factor ANOVA and put men and women each in separate columns)
a. Paste the results of ANOVA here:
b. What are the degrees of freedom which will employed to find out the critical F from the table?
c. Using the table, report Critical F using the significance level of .05. ___________
3. True or False Based on the ANOVA conducted in problem 2, there is the statistically significant difference in grief experienced between men and women.
4. Run the scatter plot on data in problem 1 and paste results here.
5. describe the relationship of scatter plot created in problem 4:
a. Positive Linear Relationship between variables
b. Negative Linear Relationship between variables
c. No Relationship between variables
