The F table - critical values

VISIT OUR REVAMPED SITE AT WWW.STATISTICSMENTOR.COM

This table gives the cut off points (critical values) of the F distribution. The alpha is the area under the curve to the right of the critical value. df1 is the degrees of freedom in the numerator;df2 is the degrees of freedom in the denominator.

For each pair of values df1 and df2 , Fdf1,df2;α   is tabulated for α = 0.1, 0.05, 0.01.

F table for α = 0.1

Examples on how to use the table

1. What is b such that p( F(2,3; 0.01) > b)?

Solution

Use the table for α = 0.01

Run along the 1st row until df = 2 and run down 1st column until df = 3. The answer is where the row and column intersect

The answer is: b = 30.817.
