Set up the null and alternative hypothesis for the following problem.
A survey reported the planning habits of men and women. The question asked, "how do you primarily keep track of meetings, appointments and deadlines?" 56% of men and 46% of women answered, "in my head."
Let p1 = proportion of men who prefer keeping track of appointments in their heads and p2 = proportion of women who prefer keeping track of appointments in their heads.
Before you have gathered any data, these would be your hypotheses.
Ho: p1 = p2
Ha: p1 ≠ p2
