### Describe in Detail

What is the use of analysis of covariance? Give the general procedure of analysis of covariance for a RBD, stating the necessary assumptions.

### Explanation

Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) : Extension of ANOVA gives way of statistically controlling the (linear) effect of variables one does not want to examine and the extraneous variables are called covariates, or control Variables. It allows removing covariates from the list of possible explanations of variance in the dependent variable.

ANCOVA is us

### Describe in Detail

Discuss the procedure for carrying out the analysis and testing procedure by means of ANOVA table for two-way classification.

### Explanation

Two-way ANOVA technique is used when there are two factors, which may affect the variate values. For example, the agricultural output may be affected by difference in treatments on the basis of seeds and also on the different fertilizers used.

Let there be two factors A and B which affect the variate value. Let Xijk (i = 1,2, . . p; j = 1,2, …, q
