    The TMC Daily News reported that the color distribution for plain N&N'S was: 40%brown, 20%yellow 20% orange, 10% green, and 10% tan. Each piece of candy in a random sample of 100 plain N&N'S was classified according to color, and the results are listed low. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the published color distribution is correct.
