Answer #1

Soln

Given that Proportion of adult aged 18 or older

a) Hence the point estimate for the porprtion can be calculated as

and also proportion of adult not aged 18 or less

Now according to question

b) At 95 % Confidence level The confidence interval can be written as

CI=

where E can be calculated as

Z_{c}=1.96 at 95 % confidence level.

So, CI of population proportion

**0.0151<<0.181**

c) Simillarly at 98 % confidence level similar formulae will be
used but value of Z_{c} will be changed as

Z_{c}= 2.33 so,

Now Confidence Interval

d) Here while compare the both Confidence interval at different confidence level we can see that as we increase our confidence level it is evident that Interval also increases and vice versa.
