    Answer:

    The correct answer to the following question will be “0.0367”.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The given values are:

    p1=p2=0.06

    q1=q2=1-p1=0.94

    n1=n2=400

    As we know,

    E(p1-p2)=p1-p2=0\\

    SE(p1-p2)=\sqrt{\frac{p1q1}{n1}+\frac{p2q2}{n2}}

    On putting the given values in the above expression, we get

                       = \sqrt{p1q1(\frac{1}{400}+\frac{1}{400})}

                       =0.0168

    Now, consider

    P(p1-p2>0.03)=P[\frac{(p1-p2)-E(p1-p2)}{SE(p1-p2)}>\frac{0.03-0}{0.0168}]

                                =P(Z>1.7857)

                                =P(Z>1-79)

                                =0.036727

    Therefore, “0.0367” is the right answer.
