In recent years, the town of Newport experienced an arrest rate of 25% for robberies. The new sheriff compiles records showing that among 30 recent robberies, the arrest rate is 30%, so she claims that her arrest rate is greater than the 25% rate in the past. Is there sufficient evidence to support her claim that the arrest rate is greater than 25%?
Hypotheses:
Ho: p = 0.25
Ha: p > 0.25 [Right Tailed Test]
Test statistic
z = 0.63
p - Value = P(z > 0.63) = 0.2635
Since this p - value is very high, we do not reject Ho and hence, we do not have sufficient evidence to support the claim that her arrest rate is greater than the 25% rate in the past.
