Due to the latest technology in today's world nobody carries cash on them anymore; everyone use credit cards or bankcards. Using the statistical data provide by textbook: Lind, Marchal, and Wathen, (2008). Statistical Techniques in Business & Econimics, 13th edition. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill. An ANOVA test of debit bankcards is going to be done on whether people that have debit cards use the ATM as much as people that don't have debit cards.

An ANOVA test comparing the use of ATM's by people with bank debit cards versus people without bank debit cards. People with debit cards are less likely to make ATM transaction because they can use their bank debit cards at stores to pay for their items without having to go directly to their bank to make the withdraw. The test is going to use a significant level of .01 for the test. The null hypothesis is that there are less ATM transactions necessary for debit card holders than by non debit card holders.

ANOVA/Z TEST/F Distribution
ATM Debit Mean Non-Debit Card Holders 352 34 10.35 Debit Card Holders 266 26 10.23

Sample Size = 60
Sig Level = 0.01
CV (4 numerator, 4 denominator) 15.98

Type MEAN ATM Transactions SD Sample Size (n-1) Debit Card Holders 10.23 4.35 25 Non-Debit Card Holders 10.35 4.32 33
Right Tail Curve = 15.98 (CV)

F = 4.352/4.322 = 18.92/18.66 = 1.01

NOTE: Fail to reject null hypothesis because F is less than CV or critical value. Conclusion: Debit card holders have less ATM transactions than Non-Debit Card holders....
