ME365 Statistics Provides a means to check whether the observed distribution is consistent with the expected theoretical distribution Divide range of possible values into M bins. Determine number of observed values O k in each bin k . Determine number of expected values E k in each bin k . Use squared error to represent the “closeness” of the hypothesis (model) to the observed measurement: Repeat the measurement enough times to determine the distribution of 2 . A “good” hypothesis will have a reasonably small 2 value. Hypothesis Testing - The 2 Test E O E k k k k M 2 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
