Question

Kate Sanders, a researcher in the department of biology at IPFW University, studied the effect of agriculture contaminants on the stream fish population in Northeastern Indiana (April 2012). Specially designed traps collected samples of fish at each of four stream locations. A research question was, did the differences in agricultural contaminants found at the four locations alter the proportion of the fish population by gender? Observed frequencies were as follows.


a. Focusing on the proportion of male fish at each location, test the hypothesis that the population proportions are equal for all four locations. Use a .05 level of significance.
What is the p-value and what is your conclusion?
b. Does it appear that differences in agricultural contaminants found at the four locations altered the fish population bygender?
