**FTESTANALYSIS (Array1,Array2,Alpha,NewTableFlag)**

- and are array of data.
- is the significance level.
- is the logical value.
- FTESTANALYSIS(), compares the variances between two group of data.

## Description

- This function gives the analysis of variance.
- This statistics used to determine the significant difference of three or more variables or multivariate collected from experimental

research.

- So this analysis is depending on the hypothesis.
- The hypotheses for this test are

(null hypothesis, variances are equal) (alternative hypothesis, variances are not equal)

- For example, the comparison of SCORES across GROUPS,where there are two groups.
- The purpose is to determine if the mean SCORE on a test is different for the two groups tested (i.e., control and treatment groups)
- In FTESTANALYSIS (Array1,Array2,Alpha,NewTableFlag) where is the data of first array, is the data of second array.
- is the significance level which ranges from 0 to 1.
- is the logical value like TRUE or FALSE.
- TRUE is indicating the result will display in new worksheet.Suppose we are omitted the lv value it will consider the value as FALSE.
- The F statistic of this function calculated by:

has an F-distribution with n−1 and m−1 degrees of freedom.

- Also is the sample variance of first set of values.
- And is the sample variance of second set of values.
- If the f-value from the test is higher than the f-critical value then the null hypothesis should be rejected and the variances are unequal.
- So the following cases will occur:
- If the variances are assumed to NOT be equal, proceed with the t-test that assumes non-equal variances.
- If the variances are assumed to be equal, proceed with the t-test that assumes equal variances.
- In this function the array may be any numbers, names, or references that contains numbers.
- values are not considered if the array contains any text, logical values or empty cells.

When the or is less than 2 or the variance of the array value is zero, then this function will return the result as error.

## ZOS

- The syntax is to use this function in ZOS is
- and are array of data.
- is the significance level.
- is the logical value.

- For e.g.,FTESTANALYSIS([17,22,26,31,49],[50,47,45,13,24],0.4,true)
- FTESTANALYSIS([24..30],[45..51],0.4,true)
