I'm trying to make sense of something somebody said (I hope you can tell this is not a typical homework question?) and bc I couldnt seem to figure it out myself now came here.

If you're talking about a chi square Distribution, and used a scale from 1-10 and you assigned a score of 9.5 or 9.8 to something, how likely or unlikely would that observation be? an individual's height for example. 99.9%? 99.99%? 99.999% 99.9999%. I assume there are probability tables for this?

I guess you Need to know the degrees of freedom (which I guess are dependent on the number of observations, right?). I'd choose 1 df, first (to figure out the lowest possible probability?).

I hope I made any sense?

PS: I did read that only those who Show effort will receive help - and I did try to look it up (I learned that the df depend on the number of observations, I think - it's been a while), but really didn't understand it. And it isn't a homework question, either (Can you tell or do I come across like a Student?).
