    Hypothesized mean = 1233*0.1 = 123.3

    n = 1233; p = 10% = 0.1; (1-p) = 0.9
    Standard Deviation = SD = sqrt[n*p*(1-p)] = sqrt(1233*0.1*0.9) = ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution provides a step-by-step explanation of one can compute the hypothesized mean and then the observed mean and by comparing them arrive at a conclusion about statistical significance of an event.
