F Test Example

F Test is generally defined as ratio of the variances of the given two set of values. First calculate standard deviation and variation of the given set of values. The formula used to calculate SD is,
Standard Deviation Formula
Standard Deviation Formula
The standard deviation is represented by the symbol ᵟ and variance is square of the standard deviation.
The formula used to calculate F Test is,

F Test Example

For Example:
Calculate F Test for given 10,20,30,40,50 and 5,10,15,20,25.
For 10, 20,30,40,50:

Calculate Variance of first set

Total Inputs (N) =(10,20,30,40,50)
Total Inputs (N)=5
Mean (xm)= (x1+x1+x2...xn)/N
Mean (xm)= 150/5
Means(xm)= 30

Calculate Variance of second set
For 5, 10,15,20,25:
Total Inputs(N) =(5,10,15,20,25)
Total Inputs(N)=5
Mean (xm)= (x1+x2+x3...xN)/N
Mean (xm)= 75/5
Means (xm)= 15

To calculate F Test
F Test = (variance of 10, 20,30,40,50) / (variance of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25)
= 250/62.5
= 4.

The F Test value is 4.
