Adecco Workplace Insights Survey sampled men and women workers and asked if they expected to get a raise or promotion this year ( USA Today , February 16, 2012). Suppose the survey sampled 200 men and 200 women. If 104 of the men replied yes and 74 of the women replied yes, are the results statistically significant in that you can conclude a greater proportion of men are expecting to get a raise or a promotion this year? a. State the hypothesis test in terms of the population proportion of men and the population proportion of women? H 0 : p 1 - p 2 less than or equal to 0 H a : p 1 - p 2 greater than 0 b. What is the sample proportion for men? Round your answer to two decimal places.

Round your answer to four decimal places. .0013 Chicago O'Hare and Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson are the two busiest airports in the United States. The congestion often leads to delayed flight arrivals as well as delayed flight departures. The Bureau of Transportation tracks the on-time and delayed performance at major airports ( Travel & Leisure , November 2006). A flight is considered delayed if it is more than 15 minutes behind schedule. The following sample data show the delayed departures at Chicago O'Hare and Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airports. Excel File: data10-33.xls a. State the hypotheses that can be used to determine whether the population proportions of delayed departures differ at these two airports.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
