Suppose that a small college claims majority of their students graduate within four years. A random survey of 250 alumni finds that 145 of them graduated within 4 years.

Given that the pair of hypotheses that correspond to the claim are as follows:

H1: p > 0.50

Find the critical values for the hypothesis test. Assume that the significance level is a=0.03.

Answer: z = ________________
