The International Business Society conducts a series of managerial surveys to detect challenges that international managers encounter and what strategies help them overcome those challenges. A previous study showed that employee retention is the most critical organizational challenge currently confronted by international managers. One strategy that may impact employee retention is a successful employee recognition program. The International Business Society randomly selected 423 small firms and 192 large firms. The study showed that 326 of the 423 small firms have employee retention programs compared to 167 of the 192 large organizations.
a) At the 0.01 level of significance, is there evidence of a significant difference between small firms and large firms concerning the proportion that has employee recognition program?
b) Find the p-value and interpret its meaning?
c) Construct and interpret a 99% confidence interval estimate for the difference between small firms and large firms concerning the proportion of employee recognition program.

a)
Null Hypothesis:
H0: There is no evidence of a significant difference between small firms and large firms concerning the proportion that has employee recognition program.
Alternative Hypothesis:
H1: There is a evidence of a significant difference between small firms and large firms concerning the proportion that has employee recognition program.
From the given information,
x1=192
n1=423
x2=167
n2=192
p^1=x1n1=192423=0.4539
p^2=x2x2=167192=0.8698
p^=x1+x2n1+n2=192+167423+192=0.5837
Test statistic =p^1p^2p^(1p^)(1n1+1n2)
=0.43590.86980.5837(10.5837)(1423+1192)
=9.696
b)
p value:
p=2P(z<test statistic)
=2P(z<9.696)
=20.0000 from the standard normal table
=0.0000
Interpretation:
The p value is less than 0.05, hence the results are statistically significant.
There is a evidence of a significant difference between small firms and large firms concerning the proportion that has employee recognition program.
c)
99% confidence interval estimate for the difference between small firms and large firms concerning the proportion of employee recognition program:
The z critical value corresponding with 99% confidence is 2.576
(p^1p^2)±(zp^(1p^)(1n1+1n2)=0.45930.8698
±(2.5760.5837(10.5837)(1423+1192))
=0.4159±0.1150
=(0.5264,0.3054)

A clinical trial was conducted to test the effectiveness of a drug for treating insomnia in older subjects. Before​ treatment, 13 subjects had a mean wake time of 101.0 min. After​ treatment, the 13 subjects had a mean wake time of 94.6 min and a standard deviation of 24.9 min. Assume that the 13 sample values appear to be from a normally distributed population and construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean wake time for a population with drug treatments. What does the result suggest about the mean wake time of 101.0 min before the​ treatment? Does the drug appear to be​ effective?
Construct the 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean wake time for a population with the treatment.
