Chi square test

One possible side effect of air pollution is genetic damage. A study designed to examine this problem exposed one group of mice to air near a steel mill and another group to air in a rural area and compared the number of mutations in each group. Here are the data for a mutation at the Hm-2 gene locus:
Mutation Steel mill air Rural air
Yes 30 23
No
Total 96 150

a). Fill in the missing entries in the table.
Mutation Steel mill air Rural air
Yes 30 23
No 66 127
Total 96 150

b). Summarize the data numerically and graphically.
c). Is there evidence to conclude that the location is related to the occurrence of mutations? Perform the significance test and summarize the results.
