The data are value 1 2 3 4 5 frequency 35 42 48 37 38 Does a uniform model with equal probability for each digit fit these data? 2. In an ESP experiment, four cards labeled A,B,C,D are placed face down on a table and a subject is asked to peer through the cards in his or her mind and identify which card is which. a) Show that if a subject guesses which card is which, then the probability function for the correct number of matches Y is y 0 1 2 4 ( PY y = ) 9/24 8/24 6/24 1/24 b) A single subject was given the test 50 times with the resulting data y 0 1 2 4 frequency 14 20 12 4 Use a goodness of fit test to see if there is any evidence this subject has ESP. 3.
