H "W a. A simple random sample n = 150 parts is selected from a bin containing 2,000 parts. The sample contains 12 defective
parts so that the sample proportion is f3 = .08. The 95% z—conﬁdence interval estimate for the proportion of parts in the bin
that are defective is 0.08 i 0.04. Carefully consider the following statements and then answer the question. (ii) It IS probably true that 8% of the parts in the bin are defective ..
(iii) We do not know the percentage of parts in the bin that are defective but [email protected] that it is between 4% and 12%.
(iv) For about 95% of all simple random samples of size 150, the interval estimate captures the unknown p. Therefore, we can be about 95% conﬁdent that the interval estimate 0. 08 i 0. 04 contains p.
