Expert Answer

Step 1

Given a hypothesis test to check the proportion of people taking a certain medication that develops serious side effects is 12%.

Ho : p = 0.12

Ha : p ≠ 0.12

Given out of 900 people who take medication 93 people have side effects. So sample proportion = 93/900 = 0.1033

In a hypothesis test if the p va...
