Data is independent from two respective multinomial distribution with k = 5. Test at the 5% level the hypothesis that the two teaching methods are equally effective.

So let X be the students in group 1, and Y students in group 2.

So the test statistic would be: $\displaystyle Q = \Sigma \frac{(X_i - np_i)^2}{np_i} - \frac{(Y_i - np_i)^2}{np_i}$.

Since it's a multinomial distribution, I know that the expectation is np_i, but how would I find p_i?
