Applying chi square goodness of fit test:

 relative observed Expected residual Chi square category frequency Oi Ei=total*p R2i=(Oi-Ei)/√Ei R2i=(Oi-Ei)2/Ei Toyota Camry 0.400 70 80.00 -1.12 1.250 Honda Accord 0.200 70 40.00 4.74 22.500 Ford F 0.400 60 80.00 -2.24 5.000 total 1.000 200 200 28.750

A) expected value for each category is given in expected column

B) value of the test statistic =28.750

C)

 degree of freedom =categories-1= 2

D)

 for 0.01 level and 2 degree of freedom :critical value = 9.21

E)

reject Ho as test statistic is higher than critical value
