  • Statistics: confidence interval estimation problem?

    Best answer: Since n=720 is large enough, use the normal approximation to the binomial. The 90% confidence interval for the true proportion P based on a sample estimate p=97/720 = 0.1347 is given by p ± z(α/2)*√[p(1-p)/n], where z(α/2) = z(0.05) = 1.645, n = 720. Upper limit =0.1347+0.0209=0.1556, or 15.56%

    For right-tail z-test the critical region is of the form {Z>z}, and when P{Z>zc}=0.10, zc is the critical value for testing at significance level α = 0.10 . Draw the z-curve and mark the critical value. On the horizontal axis (z), all points to the right of zc is the critical region. Shade the area bounded by the vertical line at zc, the curve and the critical region. The shaded area is = 0.10. Standard normal table comes in 3 forms (may be). For corresponding z, F(z) - z from about -4.000 to about +4.000, or [P{Z<z}] F(z) - z from 0 to about +4.000, or [P{Z<z}] 1-F(z) or P{Z>z} If you have the 3rd form, easy to get zc, direct; From 1st form, just look at F(0.90), P{Z<zc}=0.90, from symmetry, P{Z<-zc}=0.10. From 2nd from, make adjustment for 0.5, when necessary. In you have the inverse table, much simpler. In all cases, zc=1.282.
