Question: In Chapter 1 Table 1 1 lists the weights of 53

In Chapter 1, Table 1.1 lists the weights of 53 male statistics students. Although students were asked to report their weights to the nearest pound, inspection of Table 1.1 reveals that a disproportionately large number (27) reported weights ending in either a 0 or a 5. This suggests that many students probably reported their weights rounded to the nearest 5 or 10 pounds rather than to the nearest pound. Using the .05 level of significance, test the null hypothesis that in the underlying population, weights are rounded to the nearest pound.
