The Pew Research Center reported that 57% of Americans favored the Wall Street bailout of 2008. A random sample of 300 people showed that 155 people favored the bailout. If appropriate, test whether the population proportion of Americans is different from 57%. Use level of significance a = 0.01. What if we cut the sample size down to between 150-160 people, and we cut the sample number of successes as well, so that the sample proportion p stayed the same? Suppose that everything else stayed the same. Describe what would happen to and the conclusion.
A)

B)
