Answer #1

p= 1487/3398=0.4376

q=1-p= 0.5624

n= 3398

alpha=0.01 then Z(alpha/2)= 2.576

Margin of error E= Z(alpha/2)*sqrt(p*q/n)

=2.576*sqrt(0.4376*0.5624/3398)

=0.02192

99% Confidence interval for population proportion =(p-E,p+E)

rounded lower bound= 0.4157

rounded upper bound= 0.4595

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.
