Chi-Square Analysis of Distribution and Deviation of Any Sample

Three samples of Drosophila heterozygous for the recessive genes black body (b) and rough eyes (r) were inbred and the following data were obtained.

A. perform a chi-square analysis for each sample assuming a 9:3:3:1 distribution.

B. Is there a significant deviation in any of these samples?

Use the table attached.


Solution Summary

This solution shows a step-by-step calculation to conduct a chi-square analysis on the distribution of the recessive genes of black body and rough eyes. It calculates the chi-square statistic and comparing it to the p-value to make a decision to accept or reject the null hypothesis.
