Thus, in the above case this yields x = 64 / 12 = 533 . , and N represents total number of subjects. Note that this is a weighted average and that means based on a larger number of subjects receive greater weight in determining the grand mean. Because of this it is not appropriate to find the grand mean with unequal group sizes by simply taking the average of the means— a mistake frequently made.
The null hypothesis that is being tested here is H0 : µ 1 = µ 2 = µ 3 The sample means above are estimating the population means: x1 = mˆ 1 , x2 = mˆ 2 , x3 = mˆ 3 Variety Dept. 8 We wish to determine whether the sample means differ sufficiently, given sampling error, to suggest that the underlying population means differ.
