Use the data given in Exercise 7.17.
Make the two given tables into one table by combining men for capital punishment into one group, men opposing it into another, women for it into one group, and women opposing it into another. Show your two-way table.
The student who collected the data could have made the results misleading by trying persuasion more often on one gender than on the other, but she did not do this. She used persuasion on 10 of 20 women (50%) and on 15 of 30 men (50%).
a. What percentage of the men support capital punishment? What percentage of the women support it?
b. On the basis of these results, if you were on trial for murder and did not want to suffer capital punishment, would you want men or women on your jury?
