Let X have a Binomial distribution with parameters n and p . Recall that ( 29 1 X p p n p nhas an approximate Standard Normal N ( 0, 1 ) distribution, provided that n is large enough, and ( 29  << 1 1 X P 2 2 z p p n p n z . Show that an approximate 100 ( 1 ) % confidence interval for p is ( 29 n z n z n p p z n z p 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 4 1 2 + + + , where n p X = . This interval is called the Wilson interval. Note that for large n , this interval is approximately equal to ( 29 n p p z p 2 1 ....
