(In some of the exercises that follow, we must make assumptions, such as normal distributions with equal variances.)

The female cuckoo lays her eggs in other birds’ nests. The “foster parents” are usually deceived, probably because of the similarity in sizes of their own eggs and cuckoo eggs. Latter (see References) investigated this possible explanation and measured the lengths of cuckoo eggs (in mm) that were found in the nests of three species. Following are his results:

(a) Construct an ANOVA table to test the equality of the three means.

(b) For each set of data, construct box-and-whisker diagrams on the same figure.

(c) Interpret your results.
