Total sold                   185                           123
Service contracts       67                             55
The store can only sell a service contract on a new piece of equipment. Of the 185 treadmills sold, 67 included a service contract and 118 did not.

Complete the following questions in the space provided below:

  1. Construct a 95 percent confidence interval for the difference between the proportions of service contracts sold on treadmills versus exercise bikes.
  2. Is there a major difference between the two pieces of equipment? Why or why not?
