15.6 Advertisers need to know which age groups are likely to see their ads. Purchasers of 120 copies of Cosmopolitan are shown by age group.
Perform the chi-square test for a uniform distribution. At alpha = .01, does this sample contradict the assumption that readership is uniformly distributed among these six age groups?
Please show 5 steps hypothesis and use the critical value for your hypothesis testing.

10.56 .A sample of 25 concession stand purchases at the October 22 matinee of Bride of Chucky showed a mean purchase of $5.29 with a standard deviation of $3.02. For the October 26 evening showing of the same movie, for a sample of 25 purchases the mean was $5.12 with a standard deviation of $2.14. The means appear to be very close, but not the variances. At alpha = .05, is there a difference in variances? Show all steps clearly, including an illustration of the decision rule. Please show 5 steps hypothesis and use the critical value for your hypothesis testing
