Answer: according to the question, we can get the analysis of variance by using the excel

schedule 1 | schedule 2 | schedule 3 | 50 | 60 | 70 | 60 | 65 | 75 | 70 | 66 | 55 | 45 | 54 | 40 | 40 | 57 | 55 |

Anova：single factor | | | | | | | | | | | | SUMMARY | | | | | | | Groups | Count | Sum | Average | Variance | | | schedule 1 | 5 | 265 | 53 | 145 | | | schedule 2 | 5 | 302 | 60.4 | 26.3 | | | schedule 3 | 5 | 295 | 59 | 192.5 | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | ANOVA | | | | | | | Source of Variance | SS | df | MS | F | P-value | F crit | Between Group | 154.5333 | 2 | 77.26667 | 0.637163 | 0.545774 | 3.885294 | Within Groups | 1455.2 | 12 | 121.2667 | | | | | | | | | | | Total | 1609.733 | 14 | | | | |

From the above Anova, we find that the F < F crit, therefore we can conclude that at 95% confidence determine, there is not a significant difference in the mean weekly units of production for the three types of work schedules.

In the question, first we can get the specific data for the three diets, and make a table for them:

Diet A | Diet B | Diet C | 14 | 12 | 25 | 18 | 10 | 32 | 20 | 22 | 18 | 12 | 12 | 14 | 20 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 12 | 14 |

Then we can use the excel to get the analysis of variance:

Anova：single factor | | | | | | | | | | | | SUMMARY | | | | | | | Groups | Count | Sum | Average | Variance | | | Diet A | 6 | 102 | 17 | 10.8 | | | Diet B | 6 | 84 | 14 | 19.2 | | | Diet C | 6 | 120 | 20 | 50.8 | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Anova | | | | | | | Source of Variance | SS | df | MS | F | P-value | F crit | Between Group | 108 | 2 | 54 | 2.00495 | 0.169175 | 3.68232 | Within Groups | 404 | 15 | 26.93333 | | | | | | | | | | | Total | 512 | 17 | | | | |

From the above table, we find that the value of F is smaller than the value of F crit, so we can conclude that there is no difference in the effectiveness of the three diets, and I would not advise the dietician about the effectiveness of the three diets.

Problem-3
After analyzing the data got from the question, we can make a table for all the data: Store 1 | Store 2 | Store 3 | 46 | 34 | 33 | 47 | 36 | 31 | 45 | 35 | 35 | 42 | 39 | | 45 | | |
Then we can use the Excel to analyze the variance, and get the analysis of the variance for all the data above:

Anova：single factor | | | | | | | | | | | | SUMMARY | | | | | | | Groups | Count | Sum | Average | Variance | | | Store 1 | 5 | 225 | 45 | 3.5 | | | Store 2 | 4 | 144 | 36 | 4.666667 | | | Store 3 | 3 | 99 | 33 | 4 | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Anova | | | | | | | Source of Variance | SS | df | MS | F | P-value | F crit | Between Group | 324 | 2 | 162 | 40.5 | 3.16E-05 | 4.256495 | Within Groups | 36 | 9 | 4 | | | | | | | | | | | Total | 360 | 11 | | | | |

So we get the value of F is much higher than the value of F crit, and we can get the conclusion that there is a significant difference in the average sale of the three stores.
The mean sales of the Store 1 is the highest, therefore we can conclude that the place where the store locates has the highest sales.

Red | Yellow | Blue | 43 | 52 | 61 | 52 | 37 | 29 | 59 | 38 | 38 | 76 | 64 | 53 | 61 | 74 | 79 | 81 | | |

Analyze this data with Excel and we can get the analysis of variance for them:

Anova：single factor | | | | | | | | | | | | SUMMARY | | | | | | | Groups | Count | Sum | Average | Variance | | | Red | 6 | 372 | 62 | 205.6 | | | Yellow | 5 | 265 | 53 | 261 | | | Blue | 5 | 260 | 52 | 384 | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Anova | | | | |…
