I am attempting to find the P-value of a hypothesis test, which compares the success rate of two procedures. A test with 0.05 level of significance is conducted to test the success rate of two procedures.

Procedure A Sample Size: 200, Number of Success: 125

Procedure B Sample Size: 100, Number of Success: 55

My Attempt

    $\begingroup$ I wonder if the answer key has a typo (if I just did it right, I think it should be nearer to 0.213). Another possibility might be if a continuity correction was used. $\endgroup$ – Glen_b Apr 22 '14 at 10:54
