Step 1

Sample proportions:

The sample proportion of even numbers = (number of even numbers in the sample of two households)/2.

For example, for observations (2, 2), there are 2 even numbers in the sample of two households. So, corresponding proportion of even numbers is: 2/2 = 1.

Again, for the observations (2, 7), there is 1 odd number and 1 even number. So, proportion of even numbers is: 1/2.

The following table lists the possible samples with replacement, from the three given observations, along with the sample proportion of even numbers for each sample:

Step 2

Probability distribution:

Observe that, there are a total of 9 possible samples. In the 9 samples, the proportion 0 occurs 1 time. So, the probability of proportion 0 is 1/9.

The proportion 1/2 occurs 4 times in 9 samples, so that the probability of the proportion 1/2 is 4/9.

Now, each of the proportion 1 occurs 4 times in 9 samples, so that the probability of the proportion 1 is 4/9.

The total probability is: 1/9 + 4/9 + 4/9 = 9/9 = 1.

Using these probabilities, the probability distribution of the sample proportions is shown as follows:

Step 3

Explanation:

The mean of the sample proportions is: p = (0 × 1/9) + (1/2 × 4/9) + (1 × 4/9) = 6/9 = 2/3.

In the population, there are 2 even numbers and 1 odd number, out of the three numbers. So, the population proportion of even numbers is 2/3.

Evidently, the mean of the sample proportions is equal to the population proportion of even numbers.

Thus, the sample proportion targets to find the population proportion.

Now, the mean of the samp...
