Question: Smartest People Often Dumbest About Sunburns is the headline of

“Smartest People Often Dumbest About Sunburns” is the headline of an article that appeared in the San Luis Obispo Tribune (July 19, 2006). The article states that “those with a college degree reported a higher incidence of sunburn that those without a high school degree—43% versus 25%.” For purposes of this exercise, suppose that these percentages were based on random samples of size 200 from each of the two groups of interest (college graduates and those without a high school degree). Is there convincing evidence that the proportion experiencing a sunburn is higher for college graduates than it is for those without a high school degree? Answer based on a test with a .05 significance level.
