5-1 Discussion: Applications of Two-Sample Tests.

I need help with a Statistics question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Think of a problem that you may be interested in that deals with a comparison of two population proportions. Propose either a confidence interval or a hypothesis test question that compares these two proportions. Gather appropriate data.

For example, you may believe that the proportion of adults in California who are vegetarians is more than the proportion of adults in New Hampshire who are vegetarians. In two independent polls, you may find that 109 out of 380 California residents are vegetarians and 39 out of 205 New Hampshire residents are vegetarians.
