Data collected from a hospital emergency room reflect the number of patients per day that visited the emergency room due to cardiac-related symptoms. It is believed that the distribution of the number of cardiac patients entering the emergency room per day over a two-month period has a Poisson distribution with a mean of 8 patients per day.
Use a chi-square goodness-of-fit test to determine if the data come from a Poisson distribution with mean of 8. Test using a significance level of 0.01. |
