Researchers conducted a survey of a representative sample of over 1,000 drivers. Based on how often each driver engaged in road behaviour, a road rage score was given. The drivers were also grouped by annual income. The data were subjected to an analysis of variance, with the results summarized in the table.

2. Researchers surveyed a random sample of 25 employees who were enrolled in a certain program at one of three universities. These individuals were divided into four distinct groups, 1, 2, 3, and 4, depending on their job situation at a previous or current firm. The sampled employees completed a questionnaire on their ethical perceptions of downsizing. One item asked employees to respond to the statement, “It is unethical for a downsizing decision to be implemented on or prior to a major holiday.” Responses were measured using a 5-point Likert scale, where 1 = strongly agree, 2 = agree, 3 = neutral, 4 = disagree, and 5 = strongly disagree. Data on both the qualitative variable “Group” and the quantitaive variable “Ethics response” are shown in the accompanying table. The researchers’ goal was to determine if any differences exist among the mean ethics scores for the four groups. Complete parts a through d.
