In a survey of 140 undergraduate students in an elementary statistics class at UW, 12 said they were left-handed and 128 said they were right-handed. Assume the students are representative of all UW undergrads. Do these data provide evidence that the proportion of UW undergrads who are left-handed differs from the national proportion of 0.10 at the 5% significance level?
data: 12 out of 140, null probability 0.1 z = 0.563, p-value = 0.5731 alternative hypothesis: true p is not equal to 0.1 95 percent confidence interval: 0.04971124 0.14384532 sample estimates: P 0.08571429
