Question

A manufacturer of kitchen utensils wishes to estimate the proportion of left handed people in the population. Obtain a sample size that will ensure a margin of error of at most 0.04 for a 99% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of left handed people in the population.

n=______ (Round up to the nearest integer.)

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

= 0.5 ( assume 0.5)

1 - = 1 - 0.5 = 0.5

margin of error = E =0.04

At 99% confidence level the z is,

= 1 - 99%

= 1 - 0.99 = 0.01

/2 = 0.005

Z/2 = 2.576 ( Using z table )

Sample size = n = (Z/2 / E)2 * * (1 - )

= (2.576 / 0.04)2 * 0.5 * 0.5

=1036.84

Sample size = 1037

Solution :

A public health researcher wishes to estimate the proportion of
adults in the U.S. that have high blood pressure. Obtain a sample
size that will ensure a margin of error of at most 0.006 for a 92%
confidence interval.

A pollster wishes to estimate, with 95% confidence, the
proportion of people who believe that recent changes in climate are
primarily due to human activity.
Find the minimum sample size necessary to achieve a margin of error
of less than 3%.
Assuming no previous estimates are available. Round your answer
up to the next integer.
Assuming a previous estimate of 0.65. Round your answer up to
the next integer.

The vast majority of people have hand dominance--they are either
left-handed or right-handed.
In this question we will ignore the very small percentage of the
population who are
ambidextrous (i.e., those who use both hands equally well or
equally badly!).
A researcher believes that men are more likely to be left-handed
than women. To check this she
checked the dominant hand of random samples of 200 men and 200
women, and found 24 men
and 18 women to be left-handed....

A consumer agency wants to estimate the proportion of all
drivers who wear seat belts while driving. What is the most
conservative estimate of the sample size that would limit the
margin of error to within 038 of the population proportion for a
99% confidence interval? Round your answer up to the nearest whole
number.

have high-speed Internet access. What size sample should be
obtained if she wishes the estimate to be within 0.04 with 95%
confidence if
A.) She uses a previous estimate of 0.32? (Round up to the
nearest integer).
B.) She does not use any prior estimates? (Round up to the
nearest integer).
