**Question description**

1) A Pew Research study finds that 23% of Americans use only a cell phone, and no land line, for making phone calls (The Wall Street Journal, October 14, 2010). A year later, a researcher samples 200 Americans and finds that 51 of them use only cell phones for making phone calls a. Set up the hypotheses in order to determine whether the proportion of Americans who solely use cell phones to make phone calls differs from 23%. H0: p = 0.23; HA: p ≠ 0.23H0: p ≥ 0.23; HA: p < 0.23H0: p ≤ 0.23; HA: p > 0.23 Compute the value of the appropriate test statistic and the corresponding p-value. (Round your intermediate calculations to 4 decimal places. Round "test statistic" to 2 decimal places and "p-value" to 4 decimal places.) Test statistic p-value c. Make a conclusion at α = 0.05. Reject H0; the percentage of Americans who only use cell phones does differ from 23% Reject H0; the percentage of Americans who only use cell phones does not differ from 23% Do not reject H0; the percentage of Americans who only use cell phones does differ from 23% Do not reject H0; the percentage of Americans who only use cell phones does not differ from 23%
