Definition: The Chi-Square Test is the widely used non-parametric statistical test that describes the magnitude of discrepancy between the observed data and the data expected to be obtained with a specific hypothesis. The observed and expected frequencies are said to be completely coinciding when the χ2 = 0 and as the value of χ2 increases the discrepancy between the … [Read more...] about Chi-Square Test

## Chi-Square Distribution

Here, K is the sum of the independent squared normal variables. The … [Read more...] about Chi-Square Distribution

## Properties of F-Distribution
