In a random sample of 340 cars driven at low altitudes, 46 of them exceeded a standard of 10 grams of particulate pollution per gallon of fuel consumed. in an independent random sample of 85 cars driven at high altitudes, 21 of them exceeded the standard. Can you conclude that the proportion of high altitude vehicles exceeding the standard is greater than the proportion of low-altitude vehicles exceeding the standard. a. State the appropriate null and alternate hypotheses. b. Compute the value of the test statistic. c. State a conclusion at the a=0.01 level of significance.
