A student was asked to find a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of students who take notes using data from a random sample of size n = 88. Which of the following is a correct interpretation of the interval 0.1 < p < 0.3?
Check all that are correct.
If (1-)100% confidence interval for population proportion is (a,b), then the interpretation of this is we can be (1-)100% confident that the population proportion lies in the interval (a,b). Here in this context, With 90% confidence, the proportion of students who takes notes is contained in the interval (0.1,0.3).
Therefore the answer is 1 and 4.
Note that confidence interval is not a probability so we cannot determine the chance using this.
