A survey of the morning beverage market shows that the primary breakfast beverage for 17% of Americans is milk. A milk producer in Wisconsin, where milk is plentiful, believes the ﬁgure is higher for Wisconsin. To test this idea, she contacts a random sample of 550 Wisconsin residents and asks which primary beverage they consumed for breakfast that day. Suppose 115 replied that milk was their primary beverage. The null and alternative hypotheses for her test are: H0 : p = 0.17 and H1 : p > 0.17. (a) Which test statistic should be used to test these hypotheses? Evaluate its numerical value. All computations should be done with at least 5 decimals (5 digits after the decimal point). (b) Find the P-value. (c) Based on the P-value, at which signiﬁcance level(s) should she reject the null hypothesis? Circle all that apply. 0.3 % 0.5% 2.5% 5 3%...
