Question

Find an 80% confidence interval for the proportion of all college students who have at least one credit card.

In a survey of 1530 undergraduate students, 1187 reported that they had one or more credit cards.

a) (0.7380, 0.7823) (b) (0.7549, 0.7967) (c) (0.7583, 0.7934) (d) (0.7622, 0.7895) (e) (0.7756, 0.7760)

Answer #1

(d) (0.7622, 0.7895)

We have given here,

x=1187

n=1530

Estimate for sample proportion=0.7758

Level of significance is =1-0.80=0.2

Z critical value(using Z table)=1.282

Confidence interval formula is

=(0.7622,0.7895)

A card company claims that 80% of all American college students
send a card to their mother on Mother’s Day. Suppose you plan to
gather your own data to test this claim, wondering if your sample
proportion will differ in either direction from the proportion
claimed by the card company. You select a random sample of 53
