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. A. 1.853 B. 1.157 C. 1.902 D. 2.710 E. -1.902 134.

The university registrar claims that fewer than 20 percent of the students who enroll at Ivy University graduate in four years. To test this claim, a random sample of 100 students was selected, and 18 were found to have graduated in four years. Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses.

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. Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses.

A survey of the wine market has shown that the preferred wine for 17% of Americans is 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.
