Color Observed Frequency Red 84 Black 88 Green 18 a) What is the expected frequency for each color? b) Find the χ 2 –statistic for the observed values. c) How many degrees of freedom are there? d) Compute the P -value for the observed values. Is the wheel balanced? For Problem 2, consider a set of crossing experiments concerning pollen sterility in plants. Source: R. C. Jackson, N. Ngo and H.
