    Input

    Fill in the sample size, n, the number of successes, x, the hypothesized population proportion \(p_0\), and indicate if the test is left tailed, <, right tailed, >, or two tailed, \(\neq\).  Then hit "Calculate" and the test statistic and p-Value will be calculated for you.

    Sample Size (n): Number of Success (x):
