Answer #1

solution:-
given that n = 3125
x = 1415
=> p^ = x/n = 1415/3125 = 0.453
then q = 1 - p = 1 - 0.453 = 0.547
99% confidence for z is 2.58
confidence interval formula
=> p^ +/- z * sqrt(p*q/n)
=> 0.453 +/- 2.58 * sqrt( 0.453*0.547/3125)
=> (0.430 , 0.476)

Interpret your results.
option A. With 99% confidence, it can be said that the population proportion of adults who say they have started paying bills online in the last year is between the endpoints of the given confidence interval.
