I. Citing the results of a survey by the New York Times, a TV newscast claimed that 46% of New Yorkers were in favor of a proposed transportation bond (to be voted on in the upcoming election). When the pollsters at Marist College surveyed 360 New Yorkers, they found 184 who favored the transportation bond. (a) What proportion of citizens favoring the transportation bond was observed in the Marist survey? (b) State hypotheses for an appropriate one-tailed test of the newscast's claim based on the Marist observations. (c) Test the hypotheses from part (b). Give the p-value of your test, and using the .05 level of significance, state your conclusion regarding the claim made in the newscast.
