the state education commission wants to estimate the fraction of the tenth grade students that have students that have reading skills at or below the eighth grade level. suppose a sample of 1217 tankers is drawn. Of these ships, 840 did not have spills. Using the data, estimate the proportion of tenth graders reading at or below the eighth grade level. x n-x n p-hat 840 377 1217 0.309778 suppose a sample of 1217 tankers is drawn.
