am having trouble solving this problem.  Can you please provide me with some help?  Thank you.  I appreciate it. Allied Applications, a multinational commodities trading company, has recently announced a new personnel evaluation system.  Six months after implementing the system, Allied's human resources director takes a random sample of 100 management-level employees and 100 rank-and-file employees.  Thirty percent of the management sample and 24% of the rank-and-file sample report that they are satisfied with the new system.  Using a "no difference in satisfaction rates" null hypothesis, set up the appropriate hypothesis test.  Use a significance level of 5%.  Is the sample proportion difference statistically significant?
