ChiSquare Distribution
s The chisquare distribution is the sum of squared standardized normal random variables such as (z1)2+(z2)2+(z3)2 and so on. The chisquare distribution is based on sampling from a normal population. The sampling distribution of (n 1)s2/σ has a chi square distribution whenever a simple random sample of size n is selected from a normal population.
2 We can use the chisquare distribution to develop interval estimates and conduct hypothesis tests about a population variance. Examples of Sampling Distribution of (n 1)s /σ

rating to a thermostat with a temperature variance
of 0.5 or less. We will conduct a hypothesis test (with α = .10)
to determine whether the ThermoRite thermostat’s
temperature variance is “acceptable”. Hypothesis Testing

s Using the pValue
• The rejection region for the ThermoRite thermostat example is in the upper tail; thus, the appropriate pvalue is less than .90 (χ 2 = 4.168) and greater than .10 (χ 2 = 14.684).
• Because the p –value > α = .10, we cannot reject the null hypothesis. • The sample variance of s 2 = .7 is insufficient evidence to conclude that the temperature variance is unacceptable (>.5). Hypothesis Testing
