    Please solve the exercise below and show your work in Excel (and formulas).

    In an early study, researchers at an Ivy University found that 33% of the freshmen had received at least one A in their first semester. Administrators are concerned that grade inflation has caused this percentage to increase. In a more recent study, of a random sample of 500 freshmen, 185 had at least one A in their first semester Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses related to the concern and test at 5% and 1%.

    Answers
    When significance level, α = 5%
    The null hypothesis tested is
    H0: The proportion of freshmen had at least one A in their first semester ≤ 0.33. (p ≤ 0.33)
    The alternative ...
