The chi-square distribution skews to right for small df and becomes more symmetric for large df . assumes non-negative values. The entire distribution curve lies to the right of the vertical axis. 1.2 Use the chi-square distribution table 1. Given the df and area of the tail, find the 2 value. Example 1.1 For example, if df = 7 and the area of the right tail is . 10 , find the 2 value. Answer: 12 . 017 * This lecture notes is first created on April 20, 2009.
