Activity Women (%) Men (%) X² p value

cooking 80 37 15.4 0.000

washing dishes 80 37 10.1 0.001

bedmaking 63 24 9.4 0.002

doing laundry 55 17 9.3 0.002

sweeping 40 12 6.2 0.013

doing outdoor work 10 29 2.8 ns

vacuuming 25 15 1.00 ns

so the question is:

1.)I need to test my null and my alternate. Explain goodness of fit, does my expected match?

2. why is such a test appropriate for this table

3. explain your understanding of this test using p value

4. are they able to do all 5 activites at alpha 0.05? show your understanding of p values. Are all these tests significant or not?

so this is what i have so far:

My null: are men and women able to resume these activities equally?

If they are able to do it equally than both my observed and expected values are at 50% each.

I row, 2 columns. This is a test of independence because I have both observed and expected frequencies. X² critical is 3.84 from the chi square table at alpha 0.05. So i figured if X² is less than 3.84, than my test is non significant (NS).

I'm having some problems answering some of the questions above, any help is much appreciated thanks all:yup:
