The National Student Loan Survey asked the student loan borrowers in their sample about attitudes toward debt. Below are some of the questions they asked, with the percent who responded in a particular way. Assume that the sample size is 1255 for all these questions. Compute a 95% confidence interval for each of the questions, and write a short report about what student loan borrowers think about their debt. (Round your answers to three decimal places.)
(a) "To what extent do you feel burdened by your student loan payments?" 56% said they felt burdened.
(b) "If you could begin again, taking into account your current experience, what would you borrow?" 54.3% said they would borrow less.
(c) "Since leaving school, my education loans have not caused me more financial hardship than I had anticipated at the time I took out the loans." 32.4% disagreed.
