    Dogs were trained with urine samples from bladder cancer patients and people from a control group who did not have bladder cancer. Results are in the table below. Using a 0.01 significance level, test the claim that the source of the of the sample (healthy or with bladder cancer) is independent of the dog's selections. What do the results suggest about the ability of dogs to detect bladder cancer? If the dogs did significantly better than random guessing, did they do well enough to be used for accurate diagnosis?
