    Anova with squared sum of the observations

    You may like the explanation of how to compute the sum of squares provided here: https://statkat.com/compute-sum-of-squares-ANOVA.php . The page explains two ways of computing the sum of squares. You'll need method 2.

    SPSS INDEPENDENT T TEST PROBLEM

    When you look at the scores of the variable 'infidelity' in your data set, are they all equal to 1? And when you look at the scores of the variable 'very disappoving and very accepting of infidelity' in your data set, are they all equal to 2? And is it correct that only one male as an observed...

    In the data view, have you set the variable type of both variables to numeric? And have you put your independent (grouping) variable below Grouping Variable and your dependent variable below Test Variable(s) (and not the other way around)? And how large is the standard deviation of the dependent...

    I Need help finding the sum of the differences squared.

    Did you click on the link I posted? The link is not related to mathlab. I think you were at the wrong website. But again: try to compute the difference between each of the scores and the overall mean, square these differences, and then sum the squared differences. That's all you need to do to...

    I Need help finding the sum of the differences squared.

    Did you click on the button for 'Sum of squares'? The last part of the explanation there explains how to compute the sum of squares total. In short, you compute the difference between each score and the overall mean (74.3125 in your case), square each difference score, and then sum all these...

    I Need help finding the sum of the differences squared.

    This question asks to compute the sum of squares within, the sum of squares between, and the sum of squares total: http://statkat.com/statquestion.php?q1=2&s1=3&qx=1&overview=true . Your formula corresponds with the sum of squares total. If you click on the question mark below the question, you...
