Step 1

(a)

The null and alternative hypotheses are given below:

From the given information, the claim is the proportion of students who enroll in her institution have a lower completion rate. This is representing the alternative hypothesis.

Null hypothesis:

H0: p = 0.397.

Alternative hypothesis:

H0: p < 0.397

Step 2

(b)

Type I error:

Reject the null hypothesis, when it is true.

The president concludes that rejects the null hypothesis. But in...
