Unformatted text preview: 9.40 To test the null hypothesis that handicap and performance are independent against the alternative that they are not independent at the 5% level, we use the x2 statistic with 4 degrees of freedom and reject the null hypothesis when X2 > x205 = 9.488. In Table 9.6, the expected frequency and the contribution to the X2 statistic of each cell are given in the parentheses and brackets respectively. Table 9.6. Exercise 9.40.

Using Table 2, the data and expected frequencies are: Table 9.10. Exercise 9.45. Poisson prob.

Thus, we reject the null hypothesis at the 5% level when X7 > fog, : 11.070. Now, 2 !

Thus, we can summarize the data and the expected frequencies in the table. Table 9.13. Eze'rcise 9.48.

Thus, we reject the null hypothesis at the 1% level when x2 > x201 = 13.227.
