Knowing what we learned from the text, we know that an F ratio is going to be referring to a larger population. With that, there are some basic things that we can begin to understand about the information we have in terms of how to interpret the data. If F is 4.86 with the degrees of freedom of 3 for the numerator and 16 for the denominator, the computed value of F would be significant at p < .05. I say this because in order to understand this, you must compare the p value to the rejection value. This would equal 0.01369. With the same calculation to ensure the value, we will compare the p value to the rejection value which will not be significant at p < .01

1.) To reject or accept the null hypothesis we must first determine the F value. First, since the degrees of freedom is given; 3 (numerator) and 16 (denominator) we can find the F value (Privitera, 2020, p. 755) to determine its significance level. On the F critical values for the F Distribution table. Finding the meeting point, we get 3.24 at .05 significance level. We see we have to reject the null hypothesis because of the F statistic p=4.86 < 3.24. an effect did not reach significance (Privitera, 2020, p. 643).

We cannot reject the null hypothesis because p=4.86 < 5.29 at the .01 significance level. An effect did reach significance.
