  1. Null hypothesis:
    Ho: p = .50 -->meaning: population proportion is equal to .50
    Alternative hypothesis:
    Ha: p > .50 -->meaning: population proportion is greater than .50

    Using a formula for a binomial proportion one-sample z-test with your data included, we have:
    z = (.55 - .50)/√(.50)(.50)/1003

    Once you have the test statistic, you can go from there to draw your conclusions.
