The city council in a large city has become concerned about the trend toward exclusion of renters with children in apartments within the city. The housing coordinator has decided to select a random sample of 125 apartments and determine for each whether children are permitted. Let *p* be the proportion of all apartments that prohibit children. If the city council is convinced that *p* is greater than 0.75, it will consider appropriate legislation.
