# 7.10 Topic 10: Inference for One Proportion 78. Choose the correct word (s) to fill in the blank for each sentence. (a) A point estimate is obtained from the (sample/population) (b) A point estimate is used to make inferences about the (sample statistic/population parameter) (C) As the sample size decreases, the width of the confidence interval (increases/decreases/does not change) (a) As the level of confidence increases, the width of the confidence interval (increases/decreases/does not change) (e) As the point estimate increases, the width of the confidence interval (increases/decreases/does not change) (sample/population) (f) Interpretations of a cofidence interval are always in terms of the 79. What is the multiplier for an interval that estimates the proportion with (a) 88% confidence? (b) 98% confidence? 80. Research commissioned by AT&T and conducted by Braun Research in 2015 polled 2,00 in the U.S. aged 16-65 who use their smartphone and drive at least once a day. An unsettling 17% of the respondents admitted to taking pictures/selfies while driving. (a) What is the point estimate for the proportion of drivers who take pictures with a smartphone while driving? (b) What is the multiplier for a 90% confidence interval to estimate the proportion of drivers who take photos? (c) What is the standard error for the proportion who take photos? (d) What is the margin of error? (e) Construct a confidence interval for proportion of all drivers who take pictures while driving. (f) Interpret the interval. (g) A friend claims that 25% of drivers take pictures while behind the wheel? Is your friend's claim valid? Explain. 81. Research commissioned by AT&T and conducted by Braun Research in 2015 polled 2,067 people in the U.S. aged 16-65 who use their smartphone and drive at least once a day. When asked if they used Facebook while driving, 558 respondents answered "yes". (a) What is the point estimate for the proportion of drivers who access Facebook while driving? (b) What is the margin of error for a 95% confidence interval? (c) Construct a confidence interval for proportion of all drivers who take pictures while driving. (d) Interpret the interval.
