Illness Non-Smokers Smokers Totals

Emphysema 20 60 80

Heart problem 70 80 150

Cancer 30 40 70

Totals 120 180 300

We are interested in determining whether or not illness is independent of smoking.

a. State the null and alternative hypotheses to be tested.

b. Show the contingency table of the expected frequencies.

c. Compute the test statistic.
