Compute the test statistic, the p-value, and give your conclusion for the hypothesis test. Use Excel to do your computations. Repeat problem 12 for a sample size of 20 with everything else remaining the same. Give your answers, using Excel, to do your computations. ’’ There were 237 ‘‘yes’’ responses.

In a study designed to determine whether taking aspirin reduces the chance of having a heart attack, 11,000 male physicians took aspirin on a regular basis and 11,000 male physicians took a placebo on a regular basis. The researchers determined whether the physician suffered a heart attack over a five-year period. Test H0: ( p1 À p2) ¼ 0 versus Ha: ( p1 À p2) < 0 (where p1 ¼ proportion of men who regularly take aspirin who suffer a heart attack and p2 ¼ proportion of men who do not take aspirin regularly who suffer a heart attack).
