A statistics question 
20070107 

From Rick: For many years TV executives used the guideline that 30 percent of the audience were watching each of the primetime networks and 10 percent were watching cable stations on a weekday night. A random sample of 500 viewers in the TampaSt Petersburg, Florida, area last Monday night showed that 165 homes were tuned in to the ABC affiliate, 140 to the CBS affiliate, 125 to the NBC affiliate, and the remainder were viewing a cable station. At the 0.05 significance level, can we conclude that the guideline is still reasonable? Answered by Penny Nom.

From Gillian: OF75 PEOPLE, 43 ARE EXPOSED TO A VIRUS AND BECOME ILL. 11 PEOPLE ARE EXPOSED AND DO NOT BECOME ILL. 3 PEOPLE ARE NOT EXPOSED AND BECOME ILL. 18 PEOPLE ARE NOT EXPOSED AND DO NOT BECOME ILL. THE ATTACK RATE IS 80% FOR THOSE EXPOSED AND 14% FOR THOSE NOT EXPOSED. THE RELATIVE RISK IS 5.7. CAN YOU EXPLAIN TO ME HOW TO CALCULATE A CHI SQUARE TEST FROM THIS. Answered by Penny Nom.
