The null and alternative hypothesis in symbols would be:

• H0:p≤0.8H0:p≤0.8
H1:p>0.8H1:p>0.8
• H0:μ≤0.8H0:μ≤0.8
H1:μ>0.8H1:μ>0.8
• H0:μ=0.8H0:μ=0.8
H1:μ≠0.8H1:μ≠0.8
• H0:p=0.8H0:p=0.8
H1:p≠0.8H1:p≠0.8
• H0:μ≥0.8H0:μ≥0.8
H1:μ<0.8H1:μ<0.8
• H0:p≥0.8H0:p≥0.8
H1:p<0.8H1:p<0.8

The null hypothesis in words would be:
