I am getting problems with my calculations. For the first part of the question I got 68 when I try another calculation I got 1. One of the method used was Degree of freedom =(r-1)(c-1).

TABLE 12-7

The director of transportation of a large company is interested in the usage of her van pool. She considers her routes to be divided into local and non-local. She is particularly interested in learning if there is a difference in the proportion of males and females who use the local routes. She takes a sample of a day's riders and finds the following:

Male Female Total

Local 27 44 71

Non-Local 33 25 58

Total 60 69 129

She will use this information to perform a chi-square hypothesis test using a level of significance of 0.05.
