Textbook Problem

Güven, Elaimis, Binokay, and Tan (2003) studied the distribution of paw preferences in rats using a computerized food-reaching test. For a sample of *n =* 144 rats, they found 104 right-handed animals. Is this significantly different from what would be expected if right- and left-handed rats are equally common in the population? Test with α = .01.

To determine

Whether it is significantly different from what would be expected if right and left handed rats are equally common in the population.
