Name: Cake Baking


Abstract: Each factor is tested at a higher level than recommended in the instructions and at a lower level than recommended in the instructions.Only one replication for each of the 32 treatment combinations was obtained.Then each cake was rated based on taste.


Variables (column):

  1. Flour (0=Low, 1=High)
  2. Shortening (0=Low, 1=High)
  3. Oven Temperature (0=Low, 1=High)
  4. Baking Time (0=Low, 1=High)
  5. Taste Rating (1-7, 7 is the best taste)


Possible Uses: Factorial Design, Multiple Regression
