Question

Suppose that n units are randomly sampled and x number of the sampled units are found to have the characteristic of interest. A survey of n = 540 pet owners revealed that x = 243 buy their pets holiday presents. For p = proportion of pet owners who revealed that they buy their pets holiday presents, provide a point estimate of p and determine its 95% error margin. Carry out all calculations exactly, round the final answers only. Point estimate =

Answer:The point estimate is 0.45.

The 95% error margin is 0.042 = 4.2 percentage points.

Step-by-step explanation:In a sample with a number n of people surveyed with a probability of a success of , and a confidence level of , we have the following

confidence interval of proportions.In whichz is the zscore that has a pvalue of .

The margin of error is given by:Point estimateWe have that

So the point estimate is:

95% confidence levelSo , z is the value of Z that has a pvalue of , so .

Error margin:The 95% error margin is 0.042 = 4.2 percentage points.
