received at least one A in their first semester. Administrators are concerned that grade
inflation has caused this percentage to increase. In a more recent study, of a random sample of
500 freshmen, 185 had at least one A in their first semester. Calculate the appropriate test
statistic to test the hypotheses.

greater than, 25 percent. This station's advertising department believes the current audience
share is higher than last year's 25 percent share. In an attempt to substantiate this belief, the
station surveyed a random sample of 400 6 pm viewers and found that 146 watched KAAA.

merlot. A wine producer in California where merlot is produced believes the figure is higher
in California. She contacts a random sample of 550 California residents and asks which wine
they purchase most often. Suppose 115 replied that merlot was the primary wine. Calculate
the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses.
