Work so far-

124+30+43+11=208

Expected values are therefore 117, 39, 39, 13 for the ratio 9:3:3:1

(4 columns - 1)=3 degrees of freedom

I calculated the Chi-test statistic by doing (124-117)^2/117+....+(11-13)^2/13 and got 3.21, but I am not sure what to compare it to or what to do with the $\displaystyle \alpha=0.05$. Thanks for your help!
