  Consider a drug testing company that provides a test for marijuana usage. Among 301 tested subjects, results from 26 subjects were wrong (either a false positive or a falsenegative). Use a 0.10 significance level to test the claim that less than 10 percent of the test results are wrong.H p 0.1Identify the test statistic for this hypothesis test.The test statistic for this hypothesis test is(Round to two decimal places as needed.)

Step 1

Given hypothesis test
p be the proportion of wrong test results

Null hypothesis : p = 0.10
Alternate Hypothesis : p < 0.10

Sample size = n = 301
The number of wrong test results = 26
The proportion of wrong test results in sample = p^ = 26/301 = 0.08...
