Describe the chi-square goodness-of-fit test.

Provide a detailed explanation of what this test measures, and how it is similar to and different from the independent t-test and the chi-square test of independence.

How do you know when to use one analysis over the other? Provide a real-world example.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

# Chi-Square Goodness of Fit Test

When an analyst attempts to fit a statistical model to observed data, he or she may wonder how well the model actually reflects the data. How "close" are the observed values to those which would be expected under the fitted model? One statistical test that addresses this issue is the chi-square goodness of fit test. This test is commonly used to test association of variables in two-way tables (see "Two-Way Tables and the Chi-Square Test"), where the assumed model of independence is evaluated against the observed data. In general, the**is of the form**

*chi-square test statistic*### Example

A new casino game involves rolling 3 dice. The winnings are directly proportional to the total number of sixes rolled. Suppose a gambler plays the game 100 times, with the following observed counts:Number of Sixes Number of Rolls 0 48 1 35 2 15 3 3The casino becomes suspicious of the gambler and wishes to determine whether the dice are fair. What do they conclude?

If a die is fair, we would expect the probability of rolling a 6 on any given toss to be 1/6. Assuming the 3 dice are independent (the roll of one die should not affect the roll of the others), we might assume that the number of sixes in three rolls is distributed Binomial(3,1/6). To determine whether the gambler's dice are fair, we may compare his results with the results expected under this distribution. The expected values for 0, 1, 2, and 3 sixes under the Binomial(3,1/6) distribution are the following:

Null Hypothesis: *p _{1}* = P(roll 0 sixes) = P(X=0) = 0.58

*p*= P(roll 1 six) = P(X=1) = 0.345

_{2}*p*= P(roll 2 sixes) = P(X=2) = 0.07

_{3}*p*= P(roll 3 sixes) = P(X=3) = 0.005.

_{4}Since the gambler plays 100 times, the expected counts are the following:

Number of Sixes Expected Counts Observed Counts 0 58 48 1 34.5 35 2 7 15 3 0.5 3.best of luck...............................................
