Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That test statistic for a proportion is \[Z=\frac{\hat{p}p_0}{\sqrt{\dfrac{p_0(1p_0)}{n}}}\] where \(\hat{p}=\dfrac{156}{570}\approx0.274\) is the sample proportion, \(p_0=0.25\) is the proportion assumed under the null hypothesis, and \(n=570\) is the sample size.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All you have to do is plug in the right numbers and compute. \[\frac{0.2740.25}{\sqrt{\dfrac{0.25(10.25)}{570}}}\] http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%280.2740.25%29%2FSqrt%5B0.25%2810.25%29%2F570%5D
