*Compose your answers in a Word/Pages/Google document (or the equivalent kind of file) and email prior to the due date or print and bring to class on the due date. Test your code in R before submitting your lab, so that you know it is correct.
Be careful to write the code exactly, or copy the code from the R console into your word processor to ensure accuracy.*

Formulate a sociological model to explain political view. Compute a factorial analysis of variance using ANES 2016, like we did in class with ANES 2012. Perform the hypothesis test. Interpret the results, as appropriate.

In 2012, the mean favorability toward the Democratic Party was 54.9 degrees. We can use this to formulate a hypothesis about favorability toward the Democrats in 2016.

H0: muDems = 54.9

H1: muDems =/= 54.9

Suppose you are studying college graduates in the US. You know that the population mean student loan debt is $34,500 and the population standard deviation is $22,800.

You can compute the area under the normal curve here: http://www.stat.berkeley.edu/~stark/SticiGui/Text/clt.htm#normal_curve

What is the probability of selecting a college graduate at random:
