We may then consider this to be a multinomial experiment with r x c possible outcomes. o The sample size, n, will be large enough so that, for every cell, the estimated expected count will be equal to 5 or more. Two-Way Frequency Tables Entries in the "Total" row and "Total" column are called marginal frequencies or the marginal distribution. Entries in the body of the table are called joint frequencies Relative Frequency of Table The relative frequencies in the body of the table are called conditional frequencies or the conditional distribution. Two-way tables can show relative frequencies for the whole table, for rows, or for columns. The table to the right shows relative frequencies for the whole table. Below, the table on the left shows relative frequencies for rows; and the table on the right shows relative frequencies for columns. Each type of relative frequency table makes a different contribution to understanding the relationship between gender and preferences for leisure activities. For example, "Relative Frequency for Rows" table most clearly shows the probability that each gender will prefer a particular leisure activity.

### What students are saying

• 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.
