Question

For this problem, carry at least four digits after the decimal
in your calculations. Answers may vary slightly due to
rounding.

How hard is it to reach a businessperson by phone? Let *p*
be the proportion of calls to businesspeople for which the caller
reaches the person being called on the *first* try.

(a) If you have no preliminary estimate for *p*, how many
business phone calls should you include in a random sample to be
80% sure that the point estimate *p̂* will be within a
distance of 0.04 from *p*? (Round your answer up to the
nearest whole number.)

(b) A report states that businesspeople can be reached by a single
phone call approximately 13% of the time. Using this (national)
estimate for *p*, answer part (a). (Round your answer up to
the nearest whole number.)

Answer #1

(a) Margin of error,

Given,

E=0.04

80% confidence is asked, so we need to take Z-value for 80% confidence.

Z=1.28

Since, we do not have preliminary estimate for p, assume p=0.5

Substituting in (1) we get,

Solving this,

(b) Given, business people can be reached by a single phone call approximately 13% of the time

Thus p=0.13

(1-p)=0.87

Margin of error,

E=0.04

Z=1.28(Z value for 80% confidence)

Substituting in (1) we get

Solving this,
