### Errors and Residual

Why are errors independent but residuals dependent? As far i know the sum of the residuals within a random sample is necessarily zero, and thus the residuals are necessarily not independent. But also ...

### How many data points from a sample are in the region $(X>F^{-1}_X (p),Y>F^{-1}_Y (q))$? [closed]

Assume that, there are two variables $X$ and $Y$, and there is is a sample consisting of 1000 observations $(x_i,y_i)$ , $i=1,2,\ldots,1000$, $p$ and $q$ are the quantiles of $X$ and $Y$ respectively. ...

### Computing P-value

In a book, from a sample they derived Mantel-Haenszel chi-square statistic $$\chi_1^2=1.41$$ And it is written that : this $\chi_1^2=1.41$ is associated with a one-sided P-value between $0.10$ and ...
