a. Let π be the long-run probability that Dwayne makes his field goal. State the null
and alternative hypotheses using symbols.
b. Based on the simulated null distribution, what is the p-value for your test?
c. Based on the simulated null distribution, what is the standardized statistic for
your test?
d. Based on the p-value or standardized statistic, do you have strong evidence that
