analysis of experiment
Important:
1. Provide the formulas for everything the 1^{st} time before giving the answer. Include your SAS programs for all problems.
2. Approximate your numbers to four decimals and highlight allimportant answers.
3. Work on your own, you are not allowed to ask a classmate about the test. If I notice copying or cheating, both get an F in the class, I do not care who copied and who provided.
4. You can only use the textbook, SAS, Excel and your notes.

a. Analyze the data as a paired data experiment using a ttest using a two sided alternative.
b. Analyze the data using randomized block design.
2. Consider the following two designs for a 2^{83} fractional factorial design.
Design I Design generators Design II Design generators
F=BCD G=ABD H=ABCE F=ABCD G=ACDE H=ABDE
a. What is the defining relation for each design.
b. What is the resolution of each design. Explain why.
c. Find the Abberation Vector for each design and explain which one (if any) is a better (Minimum Abberation) design and why.
d. How many estimable blocks will be in the alias structure.

a. Write down the design matrix.
b. What is (are) the design generator(s).
c. What resolution is this design and is this the best design under this situation.
d. List all unestimable factors and the alias structure.
e. Sketch the halfnormal plot using any method. Don't comment on it. Give the graph and the table used to produce that graph.
4. A process for the manufacture of penicillin was studied. There were five variants of the basic process being studied, denoted by A, B, C, D and E. It was known that an important raw material, corn liquor, was quite variable. So each treatment was used with each different blend of corn steep liquor. (remember the interaction)

a. Analyze the data and do any plots you think are useful to test the adequacy of the model.
b. Find the 99% confidence interval for the difference between treatments A and C. Be sure to clearly state your conclusions (need lsmeans/pdiff=... cl).
c. Explain how the degrees of freedom of the error is calculated.
