Thus is p is the population proportion I am to
Since this statement does not contain the equal sign it can not be the null hypothesis and the null hypothesis must be that this is not true, that is that p ≥ 0.62. Besides that I see that this is a one sided test. Now I can see what to do. Let p be the proportion of brides who spend less than $750 on their wedding gown. A sample of 2500 prospective brides found that 60% of them spent less than $7500 on their wedding gowns. Thus n = 2500. The hypotheses test is then
Can you complete it now?
