Conduct the hypothesis test and provide the test​ statistic, critical value and​ P-value, and state the conclusion.

A package of 100 candies are distributed with the following color​ percentages: 15​% ​red, 20​% orange,16​% yellow, 10​% brown, 25​% blue, and 14​% green.

Use the given sample data to test the claim that the color distribution is as claimed. Use a 0.025 significance level.

Candy counts:

Color Number in Package
Red 15
Orange 23
Yellow 6
Brown 9
Blue 27
Green 20

The test statistic is: (Round to two decimal places):

The critical value is (Round to three decimal places):

The P-value is (Round to three decimal places):

State the Conclusion:

(Reject/Do not reject) H0. There (Is/Is not) sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the color distribution is as claimed.
