In corn, a dihybrid for the recessives a and
b is testcrossed. The distribution of the phenotypes is as follows:
Test the hypothesis that those genes are assorting independently using a
chi-square test. Explain tentatively any deviation from expected values, and
tell how you would test your explanation.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Ho: genes are assorting independently
Ha: genes are not assorting independently
test stat: Chi-square
CV: 7.81 df=3
computation of test stat: Chi-square = (122-100)^2/100+ (118-100)^2/100 +(81-100)^2/100 + (79-100)^2/100=16.10
Reject Ho since computed Chi-square > 7.811
Conclusion: there is enough evidence that genes are not assorting independently
