# 9. Assume that a sample is used to estimate a population proportion

### Resolved Question:

9. Assume that a sample is used to estimate a population proportion p. Find the margin of error E that corresponds to the given statistics and confidence level. Round the margin of error to four decimal places.
95% confidence; the sample size is 10,000, of which 40% are successes (Points : 5)

10. Use the given degree of confidence and sample data to construct a confidence interval for the population proportion p.
n = 110, x = 55; 88% confidence (Points : 5)
0.425 < p < 0.575
0.421 < p < 0.579
0.422 < p < 0.578
0.426 < p < 0.574

11. Use the given data to find the minimum sample size required to estimate the population proportion.
Margin of error: 0.05; confidence level: 99%; from a prior study, is estimated by 0.15. (Points : 5)

13. Use the given degree of confidence and sample data to construct a confidence interval for the population proportion p.
When 319 college students are randomly selected and surveyed, it is found that 120 own a car. Find a 99% confidence interval for the true proportion of all college students who own a car. (Points : 5)
0.313 < p < 0.439
0.332 < p < 0.421
0.323 < p < 0.429
0.306 < p < 0.446

14. Solve the problem.
In a certain population, body weights are normally distributed with a mean of 152 pounds and a standard deviation of 26 pounds. How many people must be surveyed if we want to estimate the percentage who weigh more than 180 pounds? Assume that we want 96% confidence that the error is no more than 4 percentage points.

16. Use the confidence level and sample data to find a confidence interval for estimating the population mu. Round your answer to the same number of decimal places as the sample mean.
A random sample of 105 light bulbs had a mean life of 441 hours with a standard deviation of 40 hours. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the mean life, mu, of all light bulbs of this type. (Points : 5)
433 hr < mu < 449 hr
435 hr < mu < 447 hr
431 hr < mu < 451 hr
432 hr < mu < 450 hr

17. Use the given information to find the minimum sample size required to estimate an unknown population mean mu.
