It can be seen that the p-value computedwhich is 0.00 is less than the level of significance which is 0.05. This guides the test notto accept the null hypothesis and not reject the alternative. The conclusion is thereforethat the mean number of hours worked across the industry is less than 48 per week.Question 3Test for population proportion
