Review P-values Exercise 10.57) A publisher of a newsmagazine has found through past experience that 60% of subscribers renew their subscriptions. In a random sample of 200 subscribers, 108 indicated that they planned to renew their subscriptions. If Z N (0 , 1), what is the p -value associated with the test that the current rate of renewals diﬀers from the rate previously experienced? (a) P Z < 108 / 200 - 0 . 6 q . 6( . 4) 200 ! (b) P Z > 108 / 200 - 0 . 6 q . 6( . 4) 200 ! (c) 2 P Z > 108 / 200 - 0 . 6 q . 6( . 4) 200 ! (d) 2 P Z < 108 / 200 - 0 . 6 q . 6( . 4) 200 !
