Major television networks conducted a joint poll of viewers and asked them if they felt that beer and other alcoholic beverage commercials targeted teenagers and young adults (those under 21 years old). The results of the survey are as follows. Based on the data, can the networks conclude that the percentage of viewers who believe beer and alcoholic beverage commercials target teenagers and young adults is significantly higher in the over 30 age group than in the 30 or younger age group at α=0.01? Let the 30 or younger age group be Population 1 and let the older than 30 age group be Population 2.
