I'd like to help you all get started on the CT assignment. Let me walk you through that. I am also very open to us working on the CT calculations together! We'll set the confidence interval calculations up just like Example 3 from P. 334. First though, we need to use Formula 7-1 on P. 333 to determine the margin of error. We know from previous examples that a 95% confidence level corresponds to a critical value of z α/2 = 1.96. Now we need to find the values of p-hat and q-hat. You can then subtract that phat from 1 for your qhat. Now plug the CV and phat and qhat into the Margin of Error formula. Finally, set up your CI using phat and E values. Hint: There is an orderly progression to these problems, and by following the order it keeps your sanity intact (and it is easier for others to follow you!). I would strongly suggest laying out your
