In a random sample of 200 recent calls to a national 800 number hotline, 39 of the calls were from the Northeast, 55 from the Midwest, 60 from the South, and 46 from the West.

Critical Value = 6.251 Do not reject the null hypothesis at the 10% level Problem 2 Approximately 13.5% of U.S. drivers are younger than age 25, with 41.4% in the 25 44 age group, and 45.1% in the 45 and over category. For a random sample of 200 fatal accidents in her state, a safety expert _inds that 42 drivers were under 25 years old, 80 were 25 44 years old, and 78 were at least 45 years old. At the 5% level, test whether the age distribution of drivers involved in fatal a...
