Q:
# A study was conducted to examine whether the proportion of females was the same for five groups (Groups A, B, C, D, and E). How many degrees of freedom would the χ2 test statistic have when testing the hypothesis that the proportions in each group are all equal? a. 1 b. 4 c. 5 d. 0.20

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: a. 4Step-by-step explanation:The number of degrees of freedom represents the number of data-values in the evaluation of a test-statistic that are independent to vary.The degree of freedom for chi-square test = n-1 , n= Sample size.Given : A study was conducted to examine whether the proportion of females was the same for five groups (Groups A, B, C, D, and E).i.e. n= 5Then, the number of degrees of freedom the χ2 test statistic have when testing the hypothesis that the proportions in each group are all equal = 5-1=4Hence, the correct answer is OPTION a. 4 .
