# Abstract:

This paper reports a procedure for computing the cutoff F statistic percentage point, given the probability P and the degrees of freedom determined by the experimental design. The technique involves applying a previously devel oped computing program to compute P from a trial value of F. From the discrepancy between the computed P and the required P a new trial value of F is determined. Iteration continues until the trial value of F produces a computed probability acceptably close to the required probability. An appendix gives the FORTRAN listing of the computing program. Author
