An online site presented this question, “Would the recent norovirus outbreak deter you from taking a cruise?” Among the 34,696 people who responded, 66% answered “yes”. Use the sample data to construct a 95% confidence interval estimate for the proportion of the population of all people who would respond “yes” to that question.
__ < p < __ (round to three decimal places as needed)
Does the confidence interval provide a good estimate of the population proportions?
(a) No, the sample is a voluntary sample and might not be representative of the population.
(b) No, the responses are not independent.
(c) Yes, the sample is large enough to provide a good estimate of the population proportion.
(d) Yes, all the assumptions for a confidence interval are satisfied.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the p hat, we will take note of the sample proportion given for the people who said yes. can you identify that? For the n, it is the sample size or the number of people who responded.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I put x = .66 and n = 34696 then .95 for the clevel and it gave me an error.. :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so i tried it again and entered just 66 as the x and it gave me (.00144, .00236)..isthat right @violy ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 0.66 is for the p hat. If we use the formula p hat =x/n what will we get for the x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.66=x/34696. Solve for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We have the 34696 being divided on right side, we will use the opposite operation of division, which is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is correct, so we multiply each side by 34696. Can you try it?
