# Chi square goodness of fit test

A large banking corporation believes that 80% of the loan applications it receives are approved within 24 hours. It decides to take a random sample of 10 loan applications every day for 3 months and record the number of the applications that are approved within 24 hours. The following data are obtained:

Number of Loan Applications in 10 Approved in 24 Hours Frequency

4 1

5 5

6 11

7 19

8 27

9 18

10 7

Total 88

a). Set up the necessary hypotheses to test whether the data come from a binomial distribution with n = 10 and p = 0.80.

b). Find the expected frequency distribution for the data.

c). A the 0.05 level of significance, is it reasonable to assume that the number of loan applications that are approved in 24 hours has a binomial distribution with p= 0.80.
