I am having a difficult time trying to figure out this problem about a random sample of 480 male and female adults which were asked the amount of time each person spent watching TV last week.
Their responses are below.
Gender of Viewer
Hours Male Female Total
Under 8 70 90 160
8 to 15 100 60 160
15 or more 55 105 160
At the 0.05 significance level, does it appear that the amount of time spent watching TV is related to the gender of the viewer? How would I do this problem?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 8:51 pm ad1c9bdddf
This solution presents a null and alternative hypothesis and calculates the chi-square statistic to compare with the p-value. A decision is made to accept or reject the null hypothesis and it determines if a relationship exists between hours watching TV and gender.
