Chapter 12 Exercise 18

There are three hospitals in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area. The following data show the number of outpatient surgeries performed on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at each hospital last week. At the 0.05 significance level, can we conclude there is a difference in the mean number of surgeries performed by hospital or by day of the week?
