 a. 0 cells (0.0%) have expected count less than 5. The minimum expected count is 67.65. b. Computed only for a 2x2 table

Solution:

We are given, the relationship between marital status (MSTAT) and college graduation, using a chi-square test statistic result we have to conclude on the relationship between the variable.

From, Pearson Chi - square test, the 2-sided p-value is 0.023, which is less than 0.05, so there is a significant relationship between marital status and college graduation

Hence, Both “a” and “b” are true. i.e.
