The 2-Proportions Test is a test to check whether samples taken from two different conditions are different regarding their proportion. It compares whether the different proportions in two samples are different only due to random chance or because the samples have a fundamental (significant) difference. When the p-value derived from the 2-Proportions Test is small (commonly used

Assumptions:
At least 5 samples for every condition

Step-by-step approach:
