Question

In
a random sample of 251 Ewoks, it was found that 103 were
superstitious.

1. What percentage of Ewoks polled are superstitious?

2. What is the standard error for the estimate of the
proportion of all Ewoks that are superstitious?

3. Report the 99% confidence interval for the proportion of
all superstitious Ewoks?

4. According to Princess Leia, the majority of Ewoks are
superstitious. Is she correct explain?

Answer #1

given that

sample size =n=251 x=103

1.

proportion is given by

so required % is 0.4104*100 =41.04%

2)

the standard error is given by

3)

now 99% confidence interval is given by

so interval is (0.3304,0.4904)

4)

if we look at the confidence interval in part (3) the upper bound is 0.49 and that means 99% of times proportion will be less than 0.5 hence she is incorrect

In a random sample of 519 judges, it was found that 285 were
introverts. Find a 99% confidence interval for the proportion of
all judges who are introverts. (Round all calculations
off to 3 decimal places.) Interpret the confidence
interval in the context of the problem and find the following.
