Problem

When Silvia feeds her cat, she places food in 3 different locations. She wondered if her cat was equally likely to eat first from each of the locations, so she tallied which location her cat chose first in a sample of 30 feedings. Here are the results along with a chi-square goodness-of-fit test:
