The p-value for chi-square test is obtained as 0.038 in and the p-value for Fisher's exact test is obtained as 0.079722.
There is a huge difference between the p-value of both the tests. One test rejects the hypothesis whereas another test accepts the null hypothesis. However, Fisher's exact test is more accurate as chi-square is a best approximation for large samples and the given sample is fairly small.
Therefore, Fisher's exact test gives more precise and exact result and, therefore, it can be concluded that there is no association between the presence of the robots and whether the cockroaches went to one shelter or two shelters.
