Question

Let us assume that we randomly choose a sample of 144 people. 51% of people from our sample reported having voted for candidate A in the 2004 election. Using this sample, find 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of those who voted for this candidate. Round to three digits.

Lower end of confidence interval:

Upper end of confidence interval:

Answer #1

Solution:

The 95% confidence interval for population proportion is given as follows:

Where, p̂ is sample proportion, q̂ = 1 - p̂, n is sample size and Z(0.05/2) is critical z-value to construct 95% confidence interval.

Sample proportion of people who voted for candidate A in the 2004 election is given by, p̂ = 51% = 51/100 = 0.51

q̂ = 1 - 0.51 = 0.49 and n = 144

Using Z-table we get, Z(0.05/2) = 1.96

Hence, 95% confidence interval for population proportion is,

**Lower end of confidence interval : 0.428**

**Upper end of confidence interval : 0.592**

Please rate the answer. Thank you.

a.
A national poll was conducted to determine the proportion of
people that prefer a Congressional candidate by the name of
Krystal. After completing the poll, a 95% confidence interval was
calculated to show the proportion of the population that preferred
Krystal. The confidence interval was:
0.478<p<0.5740.478<p<0.574
Can we be reasonably sure that Krystal will have at least 50% of
the vote?
