First, we divide the tract into four equal parts, or quadrants, in the east-west direction. Call the four pars Q1 to Q4. Then we take a random sample of trees and count the number of trees in each quadrant. Here are the data:

1. (a)  If the trees are randomly distributed, we expect to find 26 trees in each quadrant. Why? Explain your answer.
2. (b)  However, we do not really expect to get exactly 26 trees in each quadrant. Why?
3. (c)  Perform the goodness-of-fit test for these data to determine if these trees are randomly scattered. What is your conclusion. (significant level 0.05)
 Quadrant Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Count 40 18 24 22
