Step 1
we have given that the following table of two-way classification of all basketball players at a state university who began their college careers between 2004 and 2008, based on gender and whether or not they graduated.
GraduatedDid not GraduateTotalMale12951180Female134367170Total26387350 We want to find the probability that randomly selected player is graduated or male P(graduated or male)=?
Step 2
P(graduated or male)=P(graduated)+P(Male)P(Graduated and Male)

=(263/350)+(180/350)(129/350)
=314350 = 0.897143
= 0.8971
The probability that randomly selected player is graduated or male = 0.8971

Diabetes and unemployment. A Gallup poll surveyed Americans about their employment status and whether or not they have diabetes. The survey results indicate that 1.5% of the 47,774 employed (full or part time) and 2.5% of the 5,855 unemployed 18-29 year olds have diabetes. (Gallup, 2012)

a. Create a two-way table presenting the results of this study.

b. State appropriate hypotheses to test for difference in proportions of diabetes between employed and unemployed Americans.

c. The sample difference is about 1%. If we completed the hypothesis test, we would find that the p-value is very small (about 0), meaning the difference is statistically significant. Use this result to explain the difference between statistically significant and practically significant findings.
