it has been found that 85.6% of all enrolled college and university students in the U.S. are undergraduates. A random sample of 500 enrolled college students in a particular state revealed that 420 of them were undergraduates. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that the population differs from the national percentages? Use a = 0.05

6. This is 1-Proportion Z-Test with p = 420 / 500 = 0.84

Ho: mean proportion = 0.856

Ha: mean proportion ≠ 0.856 [Since we are using ≠ , this is a two-tailed test]

z-statistic = (0.84 - 0.856) / sqrt[ (0.856)(1-0.856) / 500] = -1.019

p-value = (2)P(z < -1.019) = (2)(0.1541) = 0.3082

NOTE: we multiplied by 2 because this is a "two-tailed" test.

Conclusion: Since p-value > 0.05, do NOT reject the null hypothesis. There is significant evidence that the mean proportion of undergraduates is not different from 85.6%

hope that helped
