Weather-Related Deaths For a recent year, the numbers of weather-related U.S. deaths for each month were 28, 17, 12, 24, 88, 61, 104, 32, 20, 13, 26, 25 (listed in order beginning with January). Use a 0.01 significance level to test the claim that weather-related deaths occur in the different months with the same frequency. Provide an explanation for the result.

Step 1

The claim is to test whether the deaths occurred due to weather related issues is the same for all the months of a year.

If the claim is false, then the deaths occurred due to weather related issues is different for different months of a year.

The hypotheses are given by,

Step 2

The test statistic is calculated by the formula,

Step 3

Where, *O* represents the observed frequency and *E* represents the expected frequency

**Methods for finding Expected frequency:**

Condition 1: If all the expected frequencies are equal, then *E=n/k*

Condition 2: If the expected frequencies are no...
