Does the sample provide sufficient evidence to indicate that the true percentage of all firms that announced one or more acquisitions during the year 2000 is less than 26​%?Use α=0.10 to make your decision.

What are the hypotheses for this​ test?

.

H0: p=0.26

Ha: p<0.26

What is the rejection​ region? Select the correct choice below and fill in the answer​ box(es) to complete your choice.

​(Round to two decimal places as​ needed.).

z < −1.28

Calculate the value of the​ z-statistic for this test.

z=_________-​(Round to two decimal places as​ needed.)

Hypothesis for this test:

Ho: p=0.26

Ha: p<0.26

Left Tailed test:

Given = 0.10;

For Left Tailed Test : Reject null hypothesis if Calculated value of Z is less than Critical Value ;

Rejection region :

Z < - 1.28

n : Sample size: Number of firms in the sample = 2643

p0: Hypothesized Proportion = 0.26

Number of firms from the sample that announced one or more acquisitions during the year 2000 : x = 638

Sample proportion : = 638/2643 = 0.2414

Test Statistic : z = -2.18
