A recent study of high school students shows the percentage of females and males who have at LEAST one notation in their school record for inappropriate behavior. A simple random sample of high school students was interviewed. The students were asked whether they had a notation for inappropriate behavior in their school record. Of the 100 females, 21 answered yes, as did 145 of the 400 males.
Part A: Construct and interpret a 99% confidence interval for the difference in population proportions of females and males who have at LEAST one notation for inappropriate behavior. Be sure to state the parameter, check conditions, perform calculations, and make conclusion(s). (8 points)
Part B: Does your interval from part A give convincing evidence of a difference between the population proportions? Explain. (2 points) (10 points)
