    A supplier of 3.5" disks clams that only 1% of the disks are defective. In a random sample of 600 disks, it is found that 3% are defective, but the supplier claims that this is simply a sample fluctuation. At the 0.01 level of significance, test the supplier's claim that 1% are defective.
    True or false: There is not sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that 1% are defective.

    True
    False
