They tested two different types of vaccines: a shot and a nasal spray. To test the effectiveness, 1000 participants were randomly selected with 500 people getting the shot and 500 the nasal spray. Of the 500 people were treated with the shot, 80 developed the flu and 420 did not. Of the people who were treated with the nasal spray, 120 people developed the flu and 380 did not. The level of significance was set at.05. The proportion of people who were treated with the shot who developed the flu =.16, and the proportion of the people who were treated with the nasal spray was.24. The calculated p value =.0008.We have to research Is there any significant difference between two typres of vaccine i.e, a shot and nasal spray used for preventing nasal spray?2.
