A corporation randomly selects 150 salespeople and finds that 66% who have never taken a self-improvement course would like such a course. The firm did a similar study 10 years ago in which 60% of a random sample of 160 salespeople wanted a self-improvement course. The groups are assumed to be independent random samples. Let π1 and π2 represent the true proportion of workers who would like to attend a self-improvement course in the recent study and the past study, respectively.

Referring to Table 10-11, what is/are the critical value(s) when performing a Z test on whether population proportions are different if α = 0.05?

a. ± 1.96

b. ± 2.08

c. ± 1.645

d. -1.96
