The answer is from graphic calculator. however, if you get Zcal = 5383, it is a very significant indication of mean > 1/6... Just state the level of significant you want to set... say 1 % . Then make your conclusion.

Thank you for the reply. We cant use graphic calculator. I was taught that the default alpha is 5%. Then compare z value to alpha at 5%. Afterwards, use the z value to calculate p value to determine strength of conclusion. Does that mean for this question i assume alpha is 1% since z value is big hence p value should be small?

I uploaded my working and clarifications under answer. Could you please advise me if i am right on saying probability cant be 0 hence we assume 1%?
