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.

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)

0.306 < 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.
