Question

(1 point) **Fireworks.** Last summer, Survey USA
published results of a survey stating that 307 of 530 randomly
sampled Kansas residents planned to set off fireworks on July 4th.
Round all results to 4 decimal places.

1. Calculate the point estimate for the proportion of Kansas residents that planned to set off fireworks on July 4th

2. Calculate the standard error for the point estimate you calculated in part 1.

3. Calculate the margin of error for a 99 % confidence interval for the proportion of Kansas residents that planned to set off fireworks on July 4th.

4. What are the lower and upper limits for the 99 % confidence interval.

( , )

5. Use the information from Survey USA poll to determine the sample size needed to construct a 90% confidence interval with a margin of error of no more than 4.9%. For consistency, use the reported sample proportion for the planning value of p* (rounded to 4 decimal places) and round your Z-value to 3 decimal places. Your answer should be an integer.

Answer #1

1) = 307/530 = 0.5792

2) Standard error =

3) At 99% confidence level, the critical value is
z_{0.005} = 2.575

Margin of error = z_{0.005} * SE

= 2.575 * 0.0214 = 0.0551

4) The 99% confidence interval is

+/- E

= 0.5792 +/- 0.0551

= 0.5241, 0.6343

Lower limit = 0.5241

Upper limit = 0.6343

5) At 90% confidence level, the critical value is
z_{0.05} = 1.645

Margin of error = 0.049

A survey asked residents of Rain County and Snow County if they
planned to set off fireworks on July 4. The results of the survey
showed that 429 of the 1,946 randomly sampled residents from Rain
County and 469 of the 1,662 randomly sampled residents from Snow

Consider two independent random samples with the following
results:
n1=493
x1=96
n2=307
x2=288
Use this data to find the 90% confidence interval for the true
difference between the population proportions.

the confidence interval. Round the answer 3 decimal points Step
2: Find the margin of error. Round answer to 6 decimal places
Step
3: Construct the 90% confidence interval. Round answer 3 decimal
places
