QUESTION 3

3.Nintendo Sony would like to test the hypothesis that a difference exists in the average age of users of a Wii, a PlayStation, or an Xbox console game. The following data represent the age of a random sample of Wii, PlayStation, and Xbox users.

Wii PlayStation Xbox

more than the critical value, we cannot conclude that there is a difference in the average age of users of a Wii, a PlayStation, or an Xbox console game.

less than the critical value, we cannot conclude that there is a difference in the average age of users of a Wii, a PlayStation, or an Xbox console game.
