Histogram of Chi-square values In other words, only 5% of the time will the Chi-square value exceed 5.99 How large a Chi-square value must be obtained before we decid to reject the hypothesis? Let’s conduct the cross thousands of times and each time calculate Chi-square Our calculated Chi Square value exceed the critical value of 5.99,
