    Statistics

    Can someone do this. I want to make sure im right.

    During the the 2000 season, the home team won 138 of 240 regular season NFL games.
    Is there a strong evidence of homefield advantage? Test a hypothesis and state your conclusion.

    I found the p-value, but im having a hard time making a conclusion.
    Can someone check me, and show me what a right conclusion would be?
    thanks

    What is you alternative hypothesis? What test are you using? What level of signifance are you using? What is the critical value of the test statistic? What is your p-value?

    You need to give all the important details of your calculation.

    H: p =.5
    H: a >.5

    SD(phat)=.0323
    zscore=2.321
    P-value=.0102

    Is your p-value greater or less than your chosen level of significance? Therefore ......
