Null Hypothesis

#1
I am new to Statistics and using Chi Square test in R. My output is :

X-squared = 4.5765, df = 2, p-value = 0.1014

How do i conclude if Null Hypothesis is rejected or not. Also, if the input data is dependent or independent? Kindly advise.

Thanks a lot!

Before conducting your analysis you state an alpha level (significance). In most fields the cut-0ff level of 0.05 is used. Thus if that was your chosen level, then o.10 is greater than 0.05, so you would failure to reject the null hypothesis at your selected alpha level.
