Part I:

1. Determine the expected frequency for each of the cellswithin the table.

2. Compute the sample chi-square statistic from thecontingency table.

3. Conduct a chi-square test of independence to determinewhether there is a relationship between gender and college majors. Show all ofyour work to support your chi-square test.

4. What conclusion can be determined from the results of thechi-square test?

Part II:

Suppose we are only interested in the college majors of thewomen in our study. We would like to compare our sample to the nationalpercentage of women majoring in each of the categories (NS, SS, and H) anddetermine whether the sample distribution fits the national distribution.Suppose the national percentage of women majoring in Natural Sciences is 22%,majoring in Social Sciences is 28%, and majoring in the Humanities is 30%.
