Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

n = 100

Point estimate = sample proportion = = 0.42

1 - = 1-0.42=0.58

At 92% confidence level

Z/2=1.751 ( Using z table )

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

= 1.751(((0.42*0.58) /100 )

= 0.086

A 95% confidence interval for population proportion p is ,

- E < p < + E

0.42-0.086 < p < 0.42+0.086

0.334<p<0.506
