Using a formula for a binomial proportion onesample ztest with your data included, we have:
z = .55  .50 / √[(.50)(.50)/500]
Finish the calculation.
Use a ztable to find the critical or cutoff value at 0.05 for a onetailed test.
If the ztest statistic calculated above exceeds the critical value from the ztable, reject the null. If the ztest statistic does not exceed the critical value from the ztable, do not reject the null.
I hope this will help get you started.
