- is called the treatment sample mean for each treatment .
- is the block sample mean for each block .
- is the overall sample mean.
- is the treatment sum of sqaures.
- is the block sum of sqaures,
- is the error sum of sqaures.
is the total sum of sqaures.
Together we obtain the algebraic identity
