Swimming Pool was viewed at a random sample of 100 theaters and was considered a success in 65. Based on these data, do you believe that one of these movies was a greater success than the other? Explain.

The New York Times reports that cosmetic surgery is seeing much growth recently as the US population ages. One aspect of this growth is that more men are choosing to have plastic surgery to improve their looks.

Use the 0.05 level of significance.
