Every week the Florida Lottery draws six numbers between 1
Every week, the Florida Lottery draws six numbers between 1 and 49. Lottery ticket buyers are naturally interested in whether certain numbers are drawn more frequently than others. To assist players, the Sun-Sentinel publishes the number of times each of the 49 numbers has been drawn in the past 52 weeks. The numbers and the frequency with which each occurred were recorded.
a. If the numbers are drawn from a uniform distribution, what is the expected frequency for each number?
b. Can we infer that the data were not generated from a uniform distribution?
