Perform a chi-square analysis to demonstrate

Cross was made between two strains of plants that are agriculturally important, one strain was disease resistant but herbicide sensitive, the other strain was disease sensitive but herbicide resistant. A plant breeder crossed the two plants and then allowed the F1 generation to self-fertilization. The following data were obtained:

F1 generation: All offspring are disease sensitive and herbicide resistant
F2 generation: 157 disease sensitive, herbicide resistant
57 disease sensitive, herbicide sensitive
54 disease resistant, herbicide resistant
20 disease resistant, and herbicide sensitive

Perform a chi-square analysis to demonstrate if the inheritance pattern obeys the law of independent assortment. Please show the steps of calculation. The Chi-square table is attached.
