# T- Test for Matched Groups

1. Outline the difference between the t test for independent groups and the t test for matched groups.

2. A researcher computed the F ratio for a four-group experiment.The computed F is 4.86. The degrees of freedom are 3 for the numerator and 16 for the denominator.

a. Is the computed value of f significant at p <.05? Explain.

b. Is it significant at p<.01?, Explain
