Chi-square test for goodness of fit

The solution addresses Chi-Square statistical questions.

13.4 The t-table has entries for areas of 0.10,0.05,0.025,0.01, L0.005. In contrast, the x2-table has entries for those ar¬eas and for 0.995, 0.99, 0.975, 0.95, and 0.90. Explain why the t-values corresponding to these additional areas can be obtained from the existing f-table, but must be provided explicitly in the x2-table.

In Exercises 13.5-13.8, use Table VII to determine the required J -values. Illustrate your work graphically.

13.6 For a Chi-square curve with 22 d.f., find the Xz-value that has area
