#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

a)

best unbiased estimate of the population proportion that will vote for Longmire =0.55

b)

from abvoe margin of errror =0.0518

c)90% confidence interval about the population proportion p =0.498 ;0.602

d)

as our confidence interval contains values below 0.50 proportion also; therefore we can not conclude that Longmire will win the sheriff election

e)

 here margin of error E = 0.03 for95% CI crtiical Z          = 1.960 estimated proportion=p= 0.550 required sample size n = p*(1-p)*(z/E)2= 1057.00
