    just trying to think of all the other q's which I screwed up...*thinks*

    with that frequencies one...compare it with the poisson's estimate (q2) did you get a fairly accurate comparison?

    And also the one with the "underlying distribution assumption" for 1ii) what did u write?

    I liked the fact that I didn't have to do a graph with this paper...only thing I did like about it :rolleyes:

    Well I accepted the Null, cos the PMCC value I got was lower than the critical on the 2 tailed test, which im asuming was right?!
    My teacher told me afterwards that it was a one tailed test because the graph indicated positive linear correlation.

    The value from the tables was 0.3365 and my calculated value was 0.359, so i accepted H1

    katie is right!

    i got 0.355 as the coefficient - not 0.359 - that might just be rounding errors though!?

    i didnt do another test for part iii, i just said that the distribution is no longer normal, so the test is invalid.
