The General Social Survey (GSS) asked a random sample of adults their opinion about whether astrology is very scientific, sort of scientific, or not at all scientific. Here is a two-way table of counts for people in the sample who had three levels of higher education: \begin{array}{ccc} & \text{Degree held} \ \text{Opinion about astrology} & {\begin{array}{l|c|c|c|c} & \text { Associate's } & \text { Bachelor's } & \text { Master's } & \text { Total } \ \hline \begin{array}{l} \text { Not al all } \ \text { scientific } \end{array} & 169 & 256 & 114 & 539 \ \hline \begin{array}{l} \text { Very or sort } \ \text { of scientific } \end{array} & 65 & 65 & 18 & 148 \ \hline \text { Total } & 234 & 321 & 132 & 687 \end{array}} \ \end{array} State appropriate hypotheses for performing a chi-square test for independence in this setting.

The null hypothesis states that the variables are not associated, while the alternative hypothesis states that they are associated.

The General Social Survey (GSS) asked a random sample of adults their opinion about whether astrology is very scientific, sort of scientific, or not at all scientific. Here is a two-way table of counts for people in the sample who had three levels of higher education:
\(\begin{array}{l|c|c|c|c} & \text { Associate's } & \text { Bachelor's } & \text { Master's } & \text { Total } \\ \hline \begin{array}{l} \text { Not al all } \\ \text { scientific } \end{array} & 169 & 256 & 114 & 539 \\ \hline \begin{array}{l} \text { Very or sort } \\ \text { of scientific } \end{array} & 65 & 65 & 18 & 148 \\ \hline \text { Total } & 234 & 321 & 132 & 687 \end{array}\)
State appropriate hypotheses for performing a chi-square test for independence in this setting.

A random sample of U.S. adults was recently asked, "Would you support or oppose major new spending by the federal government that would help undergraduates pay tuition at public colleges without needing loans?" The two-way table shows the responses, grouped by age.

\(\begin{array}{ccc} & Age \ Response & {\begin{array}{l|r|r|r|r|r} & 18-34 & 35-49 & 50-64 & 65+ & Total \\ \hline Support & 91 & 161 & 272 & 332 & 856 \\ \hline Oppose & 25 & 74 & 211 & 255 & 565 \\ \hline Don't know & 4 & 13 & 20 & 51 & 88 \\ \hline Total & 120 & 248 & 503 & 638 & 1509 \end{array}} \ \end{array}\)

Do these data provide convincing evidence of an association between age and opinion about loan-free tuition in the population of U.S. adults?

The following two-way contingency table gives the breakdown of the population of adults in a town according to their highest level of education and whether or not they regularly take vitamins:
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|c|} \hline \text {Education}& \text {Use of vitamins takes} &\text{Does not take}\\ \hline \text {No High School Diploma} & 0.03 & 0.07 \\ \hline \text{High School Diploma} & 0.11 & 0.39 \\ \hline \text {Undergraduate Degree} & 0.09 & 0.27 \\ \hline \text {Graduate Degree} & 0.02 & 0.02 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
You select a person at random. What is the probability the person does not take vitamins regularly?

A survey of 4826 randomly selected young adults (aged 19 to 25) asked, "What do you think are the chances you will have much more than a middle-class income at age 30?" The two-way table summarizes the responses.
\(\begin{array}{c|cc|c} &\text { Female } & \text { Male } & \text { Total } \\ \hline \text { Almost no chance } & 96 & 98 & 194 \\ \hline \text { Some chance but } \ \text { probably not } & 426 & 286 & 712 \\\hline \text { A 50-50 chance } & 696 & 720 & 1416 \\ \hline \text { A good chance } & 663 & 758 & 1421 \\ \hline \text { Almost certain } & 486 & 597 & 1083 \\ \hline \text { Total } & 2367 & 2459 & 4826 \end{array}\)
Choose a survey respondent at random. Define events G: a good chance, M: male, and N: almost no chance. Find \(P(C∣M)\). Interpret this value in context.
