Question: It has been reported that 80 of taxpayers who are

It has been reported that 80% of taxpayers who are audited by the Internal Revenue Service end up paying more money in taxes. Assume that auditors are randomly assigned to cases, and that one of the ways the IRS oversees its auditors is to monitor the percentage of cases that result in the taxpayer paying more taxes. If a sample of 400 cases handled by an individual auditor has 77.0% of those she audited paying more taxes, is there reason to believe her overall “pay more” percentage might be some value other than 80%? Use the 0.10 level of significance in reaching a conclusion. Determine and interpret the p-value for the test.
