    1. Sixty-four students in an introductory college economics class were asked how many credits they had earned in college, and how certain they were about their choice of major. Research question: At α = .02, is the degree of certainty independent of credits earned?
    Observed frequencies
    Credits Earned Very Uncertain Somewhat Certain Very Certain Row Total
    0-9 12 8 3 23
    10-59 8 4 9 21
    60 or more 1 7 12 20
    Col Total 21 19 24 64

    Step 1: State the null and alternate hypotheses
    Step 2: Select level of significance
    a = 0.2
    Step 3: Identify the test statistic and state its formula

    Step 4: Formulate a decision rule
    Step 5: Make a decision
