College Statistics problem help

A weight loss center provided a loss for 72% of its participants.  The center’s leader decides to test a new weight loss strategy on a random sample size of 140 and found weight loss in 78% of the participants.  Test an appropriate hypothesis to see if the new method leads to an improvement in the clients’ success rates. 

Generate a null and alternate hypothesis (.72):
 What is the z test statistic?

 What is the p-value?

Do you REJECT or RETAIN the null hypothesis at the 1% level?
