## Anova results explanation

 From: DrakeGis Subject: Anova results explanation Date: Wed, 12 May 2004 13:02:06 -0400 (EDT) User-agent: SquirrelMail/1.4.2

Hi,
Perhaps is a silly question, but is my first time working with ANOVA
and I don't understand the meaning of the output of ANOVA function in
OCTAVE.
I'm running ANOVA test on some data and I have the following results...

What is the meaning of p-value ??? Is Octave taking 95% of confidence,
or 97.5% ? What if p-value is greater or equal to 1 ???
Thanks

Drake.

Here are some results....
