The results are Weekly Chip Sale HIGH MEDIUM LOW TOTAL Economy at peak 20 7 3 30 Economy at trough 30 40 30 100 Economy rising 20 8 2 30 Economy Falling 30 5 5 40 TOTAL 100 60 40 200 State the null hypothesis. At 0.10 significance level, what is your conclusion? Given the tabulated value of test statistic is 10.645 Pls hlep.

The results are Weekly Chip Sale HIGH MEDIUM LOW TOTAL Economy at peak 20 7 3 30 Economy at trough 30 40 30 100 Economy rising 20 8 2 30 Economy Falling 30 5 5 40 TOTAL 100 60 40 200 State the null hypothesis Ho: Chip sales and the economy are independent --------------- At 0.10 significance level, what is your conclusion? Given the tabulated value of test statistic is 10.645? --------------- The critical value for this one-tail, Chi-Sq test, with df = (4-1)(3-1) = 6, and alpha = 10% is 10.645 -------- Since the test statistic and the critical value are the same, there is no conclusion from this test. ---------- Comment: Your problem statement gives the test statistic as 10.645 but running a Chi-Sq. Test against the data shows a test statistic of 34.597222... and corresponding p-value of 5.157 x 10^-6. Those numbers would provide strong evidence the Ho should be rejected. Are you sure your problem states that the test statistic is 10.645? =============== Cheers, Stan H.
