    Lottery numbers

    Some first year statistics decided to try and use their new-found knowledge to gain unearned riches. To that end, they decided to see if they could detect any pattern in past Pick-3 lottery draws. Although each lottery number is a 3 digit number, it is actually 3 numbers (each between 0 and 9) picked at random. The students collected data over a 32 week period in which 654 random digits were chosen in all. Their data appears in the following table:

    (the single digits are the lottery numbers and the others are the count of how many there were selected in the sample)

    0 - 62
    1 - 55
    2 - 66
    3 - 64
    4 - 75
    5 - 57
    6 - 71
    7 - 74
    8 - 69
    9 - 61


    Perform the appropriate hypothesis test to determine if the data suggests that some numbers are more likely to be picked than others.
    WHICH TEST SHOULD I USE?

    ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

    THANKS
