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...
