A contingency table summarizes data that has been classified on two dimensions or scales. TRUE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Chi-Square 2. The actual counts in the cells of a contingency table are referred to as the expected cell frequencies. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Chi-Square 1-1075 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 3. The χ2 goodness of fit test requires nominative level of data. TRUE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Hard Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Chi-Square 4. The chi-square distribution is a continuous probability distribution that is skewed to the left. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Chi-Square 5. Expected cell frequencies for a multinomial distribution are calculated by assuming statistical dependence. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Chi-Square 6. A multinomial probability distribution describes data that is classified into two or more categories when a multinomial experiment is carried out. TRUE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Chi-Square 1-1076 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 7. The trials of a multinomial probability are assumed to be dependent. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 3 Topic: Chi-Square 8. One use of the chi-square goodness of fit test is to determine if specified multinomial probabilities in the null hypothesis is correct.

    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.
