The records of a state-owned company indicate that of all vehicles undergoing emissions testing during the previous year, 70% passed on the first test. A random sample of 200 cars tested in the country during the current year reveals that 62% passed the initial test.

(a) State the null and alternative hypotheses for the test. (b)What is the test statistic? (c) Calculate the value of the test statistic for this test.
