## Given A Simple Random Sample Of Men And A Simple

Given a simple random sample of men and a simple random sample of women, we want to use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the percentage of men who smoke is equal to the percentage of women who smoke. One approach is to use the P-value method of hypothesis testing, a second approach is to use the traditional method of hypothesis testing, and a third approach is to base the conclusion on the 95% confidence interval estimate of p1—p2. Will all three approaches always result in the same conclusion? Explain.
