Construct a 95% CI for the true proportion of alloy failures caused by stress corrosion cracking. 1 Determination of the sample size If p is known, the sample is: 2 2 / = E Z pq n α where E is the maximum error of estimate or the half-width of the confidence interval.. If the p is unknown, p is equal to 0.5 and sample size is: 2 2 / 4 1 = E Z n α 2 Large Sample (1- α) 100% Confidence Interval for two population proportions (p 1-p 2 ) 2 2 2 1 1 1 2 / 2 1 ) ˆ ˆ ( 2 / 2 1 ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ ) ˆ ˆ ( ) ˆ ˆ ( 2 1 n q p n q p Z...
