Step 1

The aim is to identify the null and alternative hypotheses for testing the claim.

Step 2

In this context, a politician claimed that the proportion of taxpayers from a certain region who do not pay any income taxes is 47%.

Here, the sample size is, n = 159; the number of taxpayers who do not pay any income taxes in the sample is, x = 73.

Step 3

H0: p = 0.47, that is, 47% in the sample of 159 taxpayers show the taxpayers who do not pay any income taxes.

Alternative hypothesis:

Ha: p...
