Question 1

A goodness of fit test is to be performed to see if Web Surfers prefer any of four Web sites (A, B, C and D) more than the other three. A sample of 60 consumers is used. What is the expected frequency for Web site A?

1/4

20

15

30

Question 2

A variable contains five categories. It is expected that data are uniformly distributed across these five categories. To test this, a sample of observed data is gathered on this variable resulting in frequencies of 27, 30, 29, 21, and 24. Using ? = .01, the critical value of chi-square is _______.

7.78

15.09

9.24

13.28

15.48

Question 3

A variable contains five categories. It is expected that data are uniformly distributed across these five categories. To test this, a sample of observed data is gathered on this variable resulting in frequencies of 27, 30, 29, 21, and 24. Using ? = .01, the appropriate decision is _______.

reject the null hypothesis that the observed distribution is uniform

reject the null hypothesis that the observed distribution is not uniform

do not reject the null hypothesis that the observed distribution is uniform

do not reject the null hypothesis that the observed distribution is not uniform

do nothing
