Test the given claim. Identify the null? hypothesis, alternative? hypothesis, test? statistic, P-value, and then state the conclusion about the null? hypothesis, as well as the final conclusion that addresses the original claim. Among 2197 passenger cars in a particular? region, 256 had only rear license plates. Among 346 commercial? trucks, 53 had only rear license plates. A reasonable hypothesis is that commercial trucks owners violate laws requiring front license plates at a higher rate than owners of passenger cars. Use a 0.01 significance level to test that hypothesis.
Identify the test statistic:
Identify the p-value
Identify the confidence interval limits

Null Hypothesis H0: P1- P2 =

Alternative Hypothesis H1: P1 - P2 < 0

For owners of pasenger cars , the proportion is p1 = 256/2197= 0.1165

For Commercial truck owners , the proportion is p2 = 53/346 =0.1532

Under H0, the test statistic is

where

The critical value of Z at 1% significance level is -2.33

The P-Value is 0.0261

Level of significance = 0.01

Since p value is greater than significance level, Fail to Reject H0.

Hence, we donot enough evidence to support the claim that commercial trucks owners violate laws requiring front license plates at a higher rate than owners of passenger cars
