A random sample of 1000 people was drawn. What was the probability that the sample would predict a victory for Romney? Find the 95% confidence interval for Romney’s victory ˆ Solution : p = . A victory for Romney means p > .50. Thus P (ˆ > .50) =? p µ (ˆ) = p _________ σ (ˆ) = p ___________ p ∼ Normal (__________,_________) ˆ mean P (ˆ > .50) = P z > .5−sd p = ___________ 95% CI = Sampling Distribution of the Sample Proportion (continued Checkpoint 3 - Modeling and Inference Sampling Distribution of the Sample Proportion Meaning of CI C.
