Student Learning Outcome

The student will explore the properties of contingency tables.

Table 1
smoking level/day     ethnicity      
  African American Native Hawaiian Latino Japanese Americans White TOTALS
1-10            
11-20            
21-30            
31+            
TOTALS            

Hypothesis Test

Data

Copy the data from Chapter 3, Practice 2, into the above table.

Hypothesis

State the hypotheses.

HO:HO: size 12{H rSub { size 8{O} } :} {} ____________________

Ha:Ha: size 12{H rSub { size 8{a} } :} {} ____________________

Expected Values

Enter expected values on the above table. (Round to two decimal places.)
