the problem asks to complete an ANOVA table and report the relevant SS, df, MS, and F values, and find the critical value for the F-values. I found my F values: they were 3 and 16. I do not understand how to find the critical value.

    The critical value is found in a table, it is a measure of the probability density function.

    I'm not quite sure what you are asking, but I will give you an example and hope it helps.

    Suppose we have the following table with the values included:


    To get some of these values, we can do a few things:

    SS total = SS between + SS within = 16.93 (from the table).

    To calculate df between:
    k - 1 = 3 - 1 = 2
    Note: k = number of levels.

    To calculate df within:
    N - k = 15 - 3 = 12
    Note: N = total number of values in all levels.

    df total = df between + df within = 14 (from the table).

    To calculate MS between:
    SS between/df between = (8.13)/2 = 4.065

    To calculate MS within:
    SS within/df within = (8.8)/12 = 0.73

    To calculate F-ratio:
    MS between/MS within = (4.065)/(0.73) = 5.57

    I hope this will help.
