You are asked to conduct a study to determine if gender has any bearing on the choice of a dog or cat as a pet. You take a random sample of 350 adults and ask each what kind of pet they would prefer, a dog or a cat? The results of your poll are summarized in the following contingency table:
Dog 70 99
Cat 80 101
Test the independence of gender and preferred pet at a 5% level. Explain your conclusion (don't just say "can't reject Ho" or "gender is not independent of pet choice").© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 10:44 pm ad1c9bdddf
