A) Perform the two (2) checks necessary for determining the confidence interval for the proportion go American adults who own a smartphone. For each check, clearly state the conclusion using 1 sentence. You must use appropriate notation.

B) Determine and state the 98% confidence interval for the proportion of American adults who own a smartphone.

C) Using one sentence, interpret the 98% confidence interval in the context of this scenario.

a)

 conditions for normality n p 2252 0.46 np 1035.92 nq 1216.08 np(1-p) 559.3968

both np and nq > 5

hence normal approximation is appropriate

b)

 X 1035.92 n 2252 p 0.460 q 0.540 alpha 0.02 z 2.326348 E 0.0244 lower 0.436 upper 0.484

98% confidence interval is (0.436,0.484)

c)

we are 98% confident that true proportion of American adults who own a smartphone lies in this confidence interval
