b. What is the point estimate of the difference between the proportions of the two populations? What does this estimate tell you about the percentage of putts made by the two groups of golfers?
c. What is the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the two population proportions? Interpret his confidence interval in terms of the percentage of putts made by the two groups of golfers.
