I need some help with a problem. Let me first post the results.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

289 (10 lottery ball random draws) = 4.66 ave......5.50 mean

67 (9 lottery ball random draws) = 3.30 ave........5.00 mean

49 (8 lottery ball random draws) = 4.08 ave .......4.50 mean

37 (7 lottery ball random draws) = 3.00 ave........4.00 mean

14 (6 lottery ball random draws) = 2.79 ave .......3.50 mean

2 (5 lottery random draws) = 2.50 ave .............3.00 mean

In each of the above samples, the lottery balls were numbered 1 thru 10,9,8,7,6,5. The results have in all cases deviated on the low side. I need help in determining the odd of such a deviation and how to test the hypothesis for each. I also need to know if there is a way to hypothesis test the entire population. You are dealing with a novice.

After I get the answers I will explain why I have presented this question.

Thanks,

Tom
