Consider a situation where there is a random sample of students who attend a public university and a study is conducted to determine whether the racial distribution of students is different from the racial distribution in the state as a whole.

Chi-square goodness-of-fit test is applied when there is one categorical variable selected from a single population. It tests whether the distribution of this single categorical variable follows the theoretical distribution.

In this situation, the sample was collected randomly. Each observation is independent of all other observations. It is also assumed that expected counts are large. As the hypothesis in this situation is to test whether true distribution of race (categorical variable) is different from proposed distribution, chi-square goodness-of-fit test is most appropriate.

Therefore, the appropriate test is Chi-square goodness-of-fit test.

Is statistical inference intuitive to babies? In other words, are babies able to generalize from sample to population? In this study,1 8-month-old infants watched someone draw a sample of five balls from an opaque box. Each sample consisted of four balls of one color (red or white) and one ball of the other color. After observing the sample, the side of the box was lifted so the infants could see all of the balls inside (the population). Some boxes had an “expected” population, with balls in the same color proportions as the sample, while other boxes had an “unexpected” population, with balls in the opposite color proportion from the sample. Babies looked at the unexpected populations for an average of 9.9 seconds (\(sd = 4.5\) seconds) and the expected populations for an average of 7.5 seconds (\(sd = 4.2\) seconds). The sample size in each group was 20, and you may assume the data in each group are reasonably normally distributed. Is this convincing evidence that babies look longer at the unexpected population, suggesting that they make inferences about the population from the sample? Let group 1 and group 2 be the time spent looking at the unexpected and expected populations, respectively. A) Calculate the relevant sample statistic. Enter the exact answer. Sample statistic: _____

B) Calculate the t-statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places. t-statistic = ___________

C) Find the p-value. Round your answer to three decimal places. p-value =__________
