Answer #1

We are given that:

 Number of people Surveyed Number of people who own a dog U.S. 700 294 England 850 391

Proportion of people in the England who own dogs = 391/850 = 0.46 Proportion of people in the US who own dogs = 294/700 = 0.42

The difference in proportions between people in the US who own dogs and people in England who own dogs = 0.42 - 0.46 = -0.04

Option c.-0.04 is correct.

We are given that n1 = 700, p1= 294/700 = 0.42, n2 = 850, p2= 391/850 = 0.46

q = 1 -p= 0.5581

Test statistic is:

Z = (0.42 - 0.46)/0.0253 =- 1.58

you can use excel function ''2*NORMSDIST(-1.58) will get p-value 01142

Correct option is d.0.1142.

Hope this will helpful. Thanks and God Bless You:)
