Experts believe that 20% of all freshwater fish in the United States have such a high level of mercury that they are dangerous to eat.  Suppose a fish market has 250 fish tested and 60 of them have dangerous levels of mercury.  Test the hypothesis that this sample is not from a population with 20% dangerous fish.  Use a = 0.10.
