3) The US Census shows that 35% of Americans have a passport. We think that in Phoenix, fewer people have passports (Phoenix is a resort town after all, why travel?). We take a sample of 1500Phoenix residents and find that 31% have a passport. Conduct a hypothesis test around a proportion that tests whether fewer Phoenix residents have passports than the overall US. Use alpha = 0.05. What would be your alternative hypothesis?
a. H1: p < 0.31 b. H1: p > 0.31 c. H1: p < 0.35 d. H1: p > 0.35
