The value of Z lies in the rejection region. We have greater than 95% confidence that p1>p2. ˆ ˆ ( p − p2 ) − ( p1 − p2 ) 0.060 c) z = 1 = = 2.651 0.0224 ˆˆ ˆˆ p1q1 p2 q2 + n1 n2 For z =2.651, area under the normal curve = 0.996 (one tail) So, P (p1 ­p2 =0) = 0.004, 0.4% probability that the null hypothesis is true— very small. • So we reject the null hypothesis with high confidence. z= 3/5 CEE 20...
