The analyst believes that the proportion of on-time lights at JFK is more than 5 percentage points higher than that of
a. Develop the competing hypotheses to test the transportation analyst’s belief.
b. Compute the value of the test statistic.
c. Use the p-value approach to test the above assertion.
