Instructions

Answers

1.Use the Chi-Square Goodness-of-Fit test to see if there is a difference between the number of side effects from the different brands of medication.  Use a significance level of .01.

Paste results here.

 

2.What are we trying to show here?

We are trying to check whether the side effects for all brands are same.

So, hypotheses to test the above objective are set as follows:

Null: The number of side effects of pain medicine are same for all four brands.

Alternative: The number of side effects of pain medicine are not same for all four brands.

 

3.What is the p-value and what does it represent in the context of this problem?

From the output, the P-vlue = 0.0057

Since the P-value is less than the significance level, 0.01, reject the null hypotheses.

 

4. State in your own words what the results of this Goodness-of-fit test tells us.

Hence, it can be concluded that there is not sufficient evidence to support the claim that the number of side effects are not same for all medicines.

5.Repeat the above procedure using only Brands A, B, and D.   Paste results here.
