```Question 198601
Sixty-four students in an introductory college economics class were asked how many credits they had earned in college, and how certain they were about their choice of major. Research question: At � = .01, is the degree of certainty independent of credits earned? Certainty
Credits Earned Very Uncertain Somewhat Certain Very Certain Row Total
0 -9      12             8                3            23
10-59       8             4               10            22
60 or more  1             7               11            19
Col Total       21            19               24            64
-------------------------
Ho: degree of certainty is independent of credits earned
H1: they are dependent
--------------------
Run a Chi-Sq test on the 3 by 4 set of data to get:
test statistic: Chi-Sq = 14.76
p-value = 0.0222
---
Decision: Since the p-value is greater than 1%, Fail to reject Ho.
The row and column factors are independent.
