Question

A sample of 400 homeowners includes 124 that expect their home to increase in value in the next year. Find the margin of error of a 99% confidence interval for the percentage of all homeowners with this opinion.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

n = 400

x = 124

Point estimate = sample proportion = = x / n = 124/400=0.31

1 - = 1-0.31=0.69

At 99% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 99% = 1 - 0.99 = 0.01

/ 2 = 0.01 / 2 = 0.005

Z/2 = Z0.005 = 2.576 ( Using z table )

Margin of error = E = Z / 2 * (( * (1 - )) / n)

= 2.576 (((0.37*0.69) / 400)

= 0.065

=6.5%

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) includes
a mathematical test for eighth-grade students. Scores on the test
range from 0 to 500. Suppose that you give the NAEP test to a
simple random sample of 900 eighth-graders from a large population
in which the scores have mean m = 285 and standard deviation s =
125. The mean will vary if you take repeated samples.
2. (2 points) The sampling distribution of is
approximately Normal. It has mean m =...

A simple random sample of size
n=400
individuals who are currently employed is asked if they work at
home at least once per week. Of the
400
employed individuals surveyed,
38
responded that they did work at home at least once per week.
Construct a 99% confidence interval for the population proportion
of employed individuals who work at home at least once per
week.
