b) Can you determine the factor type(s)–qualitative or quantitative–from the information given? Explain.

c) Can you determine the number of levels used for each factor? Explain.

d) Describe a treatment for this experiment and determine the number of treatments used.

e) What problem is cause by using a single replicate of the experiment? How is the problem solved?

Solution

a) There are two factors used in the experiment.

b) No, we cannot determine whether the factors are qualitative or quantitative from the given information. Using the given information, we can …
