Population of Sweden Analysis

Taking a trip to Sweden again. Last years statistics report showed that 65% of the entire adult population are women. I had a friend in Sweden take a poll to see if this was true. He picked 50 adults at random and reported that 36 of them were female. Is it possible that the proportion of women is different than what I read in the report? (use the level of significance equal to .01)

Solution Summary

This solution provides a null and alternative hypothesis and computes the test z-statistics and compares the value to the p-value and makes a decision to accept or reject the null hypothesis on the proportion of women in Sweden.
