The alternative hypothesis states that the proportion of readers that own a PlayStation console is greater than 0.5. Because the p-value is 0.002, which is less than the significance level of 0.05, the editor rejects the null hypothesis and concludes that the proportion of readers that own a PlayStation console is greater than 0.5. The histogram shows that the bootstrap distribution appears to be normal, so the editor can trust the results.
