Only 15% of registered voters voted in the last election. Will voter participation increase for the upcoming election? Of the 355 randomly selected registered voters surveyed, 67 of them will vote in the upcoming election. What can be concluded at the αα = 0.10 level of significance?

1. For this study, we should use Select an answer z-test for a population proportion t-test for a population mean
2. The null and alternative hypotheses would be:

H0:H0:  ? μ p  Select an answer ≤ ≠ > < ≥ =   (please enter a decimal)

H1:H1:  ? p μ  Select an answer ≤ < ≠ > ≥ =   (Please enter a decimal)

3. The p-value is ? > ≤  αα
4. Based on this, we should Select an answer fail to reject accept reject  the null hypothesis.
5. Thus, the final conclusion is that ...
• The data suggest the population proportion is not significantly higher than 15% at αα = 0.10, so there is statistically significant evidence to conclude that the percentage of registered voters who will vote in the upcoming election will be equal to 15%.
• The data suggest the population proportion is not significantly higher than 15% at αα = 0.10, so there is statistically insignificant evidence to conclude that the percentage of registered voters who will vote in the upcoming election will be higher than 15%.
• The data suggest the populaton proportion is significantly higher than 15% at αα = 0.10, so there is statistically significant evidence to conclude that the the percentage of all registered voters who will vote in the upcoming election will be higher than 15%.

a). we should use a z-test for a population proportion.

b). The null and alternative hypotheses would be:

c). The test statistic is given by:

d) p-value:0.0205

e) The p-value is ≤  α

f) Based on this, we should reject  the null hypothesis

g) The data suggest the population proportion is significantly higher than 15% at αα = 0.10, so there is statistically significant evidence to conclude that the percentage of all registered voters who will vote in the upcoming election will be higher than 15%.
