2, this question cannot be answered. Thus, we now need two blocking variables: the ‘‘car’’ the tire is placed on and the ‘‘position’’ on the car. A design having two blocking variables is called a Latin square design. 3.

For example, the transportation department could decrease the bus fares on a few selected routes and assess whether the usage of its buses increased. However, in this example, other factors not under the bus system’s control may also have changed during this time period. Thus, an increase in bus usage may have taken place because of a strike of subway workers or an increase in gasoline prices. The decrease in fares was only one of several factors that may have ‘‘caused’’ the increase in the number of persons riding the buses.
