Calculating P-value from the chi-square test?

  1. Jul 9, 2012 #1
    How do we calculate the P-value from the chi-square test? Is their some formula for doing so? I want to do it by hand and not by some online calculator or application.

    You integrate over the relevant range of the probability density function.

    Following Number Nine's advice use a computer software package or look on the internet for an actual calculator. Google returns:
