#### Solution Preview

Null Hypothesis: H0: p=85% (approval rating is at least 85%)

Alternative Hypothesis: H1: p < 85% (approval rating is less than 85%)

p= 85.00% =Hypothesized proportion

q=1-p= 15.00%

n= 500 =sample size

s p=standard error of proportion= square root of ...

#### Solution Summary

The hypothesis that the approval rating for "lite beer" is at least 85% at the 0.10 level of significance.
