Expert Answer

Step 1

a.

The conditions for the proportion test for sample size n and the true population proportion p,

  • The data should be selected randomly.
  • Product np is greater than or equal to 10
  • Product n(1–p) is greater than or equal to 10

Let p be the proportion of business owners gave a holiday gift to their employees.

Conditions for this problem:

Here 33 business owners were selected randomly.

For this problem,

Step 2

Hence, the conditions satisfied.

For the given problem, we should use one sample proportion z-test.

The aim is to check whether the proportion of proportion of business owners providing gifts has decreased or not.

It is given that in 2013, 47% of business owners gave a holiday gift to their employees.

The null and the alternative hypothesis is,

Step 3

Here the level of significance is 0.005.

Decision based on the critical-value method:

  • If z ≤ –zα, then reject.
