The sample proportion of people suffered from heart disease for the the non-smoker group is 1736 . 0 144 25 ˆ 2 = = p . b) Let p 1 and p 2 be the proportions of people suffered from heart disease for the smokers and non-smokers respectively. 0 : 2 1 = - p p H a vs 0 : 2 1 - p p H a Test Statistic + - - = 2 1 2 1 1 1 ) ˆ 1 ( ˆ ˆ ˆ n n p p p p Z where 22 . 0 200 44 ˆ = = p 05 . 0 645 . 1 5396 . 2 144 1 56 1 ) 22 . 0 1 ( 22 . 0 1736 . 0 3393 . 0 z = = + - - = H 0 is rejected at 5% level of significant. There is sufficient evidence that smokers have a higher incidence of heart disease than nonsmokers. c) p-value = Pr(Z>2.5396) =0.5 0.4945 = 0.0055 d) 1 . 0 : 2 1 = - p p H a vs 1 . 0 : 2 1 - p p H a Test Statistic
