A multinomial probability distribution describes data that are classified into two or more categories when a multinomial experiment is carried out.

True False

Answer:

Answer:

True

Explanation: They are similar to the one that defines a binomial experiment (where K = 2).

A fastener manufacturing company uses a chi-square goodness-of-fit test to determine if a population of all lengths of ¼-inch bolts it manufactures is distributed according to a normal distribution. If we reject the null hypothesis, it is reasonable to assume that the population distribution is approximately normally distributed.

True False

Answer:

Answer:

False

Explanation: If the null hypothesis is rejected, then the population does not have a normal distribution.

The chi-square goodness-of-fit test can only be used to test whether a population has specified multinomial probabilities or to test if a sample has been selected from a normally distributed population. It cannot be used if sample data come from other distribution forms, such as the Poisson.

True False

Answer:

Answer:

False

Explanation: The chi-square goodness-of-fit test can be used to test sample data from other distribution forms.

When we carry out a chi-square test of independence, the expected frequencies are based on the null hypothesis.

True False

Answer:

One use of the chi-square goodness-of-fit test is to determine if specified multinomial probabilities in the null hypothesis are favored over the alternative hypothesis.

True False

Answer:

In a contingency table, if all of the expected frequencies equal the observed frequencies, then we can conclude that there is a perfect association between rows and columns.

True False

Answer:

The actual counts in the cells of a contingency table are referred to as the expected cell frequencies.

True False

Answer:

When we carry out a chi-square test of independence, in the alternative hypothesis we state that the two classifications are statistically independent.

True False

Answer:

When using a chi-square goodness-of-fit test with multinomial probabilities, the rejection of the null hypothesis indicates that at least one of the multinomial probabilities is not equal to the value stated in the null hypothesis.

True False

Answer:

In a contingency table, when all the expected frequencies equal the observed frequencies, the calculated χ^{2} statistic equals zero.

True False

Answer:

A contingency table summarizes data that has been classified into two dimensions or scales.

True False

Answer:

In performing a chi-square test of independence, as the difference between the respective observed and expected frequencies calculated by assuming independence decreases, the probability of concluding that the row variable is independent of the column variable decreases.

True False

Answer:

In performing a chi-square goodness-of-fit test with multinomial probabilities, the smaller the difference between observed and expected frequencies, the higher the probability of concluding that the probabilities specified in the null hypothesis are favored over the alternative hypothesis.

True False

Answer:

When using the chi-square goodness-of-fit test, if the value of the chi-square statistic is large enough, we reject the null hypothesis.

True False

Answer:

The chi-square distribution is a continuous probability distribution that is skewed to the left.

True False

Answer:

When we carry out a chi-square test of independence, if r_{i} is the row total for row i and c_{j} is the column total for column j, then the estimated expected cell frequency corresponding to row i and column j equals (r_{i})(c_{j})/n.

True False

Answer:

When we carry out a chi-square test of independence, the chi-square statistic is based on degrees of freedom, where r and c denote, respectively, the number of rows and columns in the contingency table.

True False

Answer:

Expected cell frequencies for a multinomial distribution are calculated by assuming statistical dependence.
