3. The following table lists the frequency distribution for 60 rolls of a die.
Outcome 1spot 2spot 3spot 4spot 5spot 6spot
Frequency 7 12 8 15 11 7
Using the “Goodness of Fit” test at the 5% level of significance, test whether the null hypothesis that the given die is fair is true. (Hint: If the die is fair, each “spot” has the same chance of appearing). Use the back of the page for work if needed.

Use the Chisquare (X^2) method.
X^2 = ∑ (OE)^2/E, where O = observed frequency and E = expected frequency.
∑ = sum of all the cells.
E = (column total * row total)/grand total
df = n  1, where n = number of cells
Look up value in X^2 table in the back of your textbook.
