A survey of 1,000 adult Americans included the following question: "If the military draft were reinstated, would you favor or oppose drafting women as well as men?" Forty-three percent responded that they would favor drafting women if the draft were reinstated. Using a significance level of 5%, determine if there is convincing evidence that less than half of adult Americans favor drafting women.
