### Chi-square goodness of fit test

#### Lessons

Normal distribution:

$X\sim N (\mu, \sigma^2)=$ Normal Distribution with mean ‘$\mu$’ and standard deviation ‘$\sigma$’

So Chi-Square Distribution with k degrees of freedom:

$X^2=N_1(0,1)^2+N_2(0,1)^2+\cdots+N_k(0,1)^2$

__Hypothesis Testing__

Chi-Square distribution hypothesis testing comes in handy for seeing whether the observed value of some experiment fit the expected values.

$O_i$: the $i^{th}$ observed data point

$E_i$: the $i^{th}$ estimated data point

Test-Statistic:

$X^2=\frac{(O_1-E_1)}{E_1}+\frac{(O_2-E_2)}{E_2}+\cdots+\frac{(O_n-E_n)}{E_n}$

The critical value is found by looking at the Chi Distribution table

**Determining Chi Square Distributions**

If a $X^2$ distribution has 2 degrees of freedom then what is the area under this distribution that lies to the right of 5.99? - 3.If we have 12 squared standard normal distributions then what is the probability that their sum will be less than 6.304?

Emily is an avid potter. She pots at the UBC pottery club. The pottery club display some numbers representing the amount of pottery pieces their members produce in any given day. I go to the club and think that their estimate is incorrect, so I observe the amount of pottery produced by this studio throughout the week. Using the data given below, can I state with a significance level of $\alpha$=0.10 that the UBC pottery clubs has displayed incorrect numbers?

- 5.A car dealership claims that 20% of their cars sold are economy cars, 50% are family cars, 20% are luxury cars and the remaining 10% of cars sold are sports cars.

A list of their last 500 cars sold is: 115 economy cars, 270 family cars, 80 luxury cars and 35 sports cars.

With a significance level of $\alpha$=0.025 is the last 500 cars sold consistent with the car dealerships claim?
