Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0margin of error suggests a confidence interval, but no width has been suggested

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we wanted to be 99% confident that the true population proportion was within a given interval, we would use z=2.576 and use the standard error as a multiplier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the standard error is just a modification of the standard deviation. in this case: and i dont really understand why, the binomial standard deviation is sqrt(npq) with a mean of np (the mean i get) z=x−npnpq−−−√ z=x−npnnpq√n z=xn−pnpqn2−−−√ z=xn−ppqn−−√ zpqn−−−√=xn−p pmidpoint±zpqn−−−√margin of error=±xnend points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hint: use the central limit theorem, and use a maximum value for the standard deviation for a bernouli random variable.
