Formulate and Test Hypothesis

A medical school claims that more than 32% of its students plan to go into general practice. It is found that among a random sample of 130 students, 46 of them plan to go into general practice.

a. Formulate the hypotheses to test the medical school's claim.

b. Test these hypotheses and draw a conclusion about the claim. Use an alpha level of 0.05 (show your work and state your conclusion)

c. Find the p-value for the test of the schools claim. Does this p-value support your conclusion? Why or why not?

I'm really interested in how to set up this problem. My teacher gets me really confused sometimes. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
