Step 1

(a) Total number of voters, n is 2256. Consider the population proportion, p as 0.5. The confidence level is 95%. Therefore, the level of significance is 1 – confidence level = 5% or 0.05.

The margin of error is,

Step 2

(b) The sample proportion is provided as 0.46. The confidence level is 90%. Therefore, the level of significance is 1 – confidence level = 10% or 0.10.

The margin of error is,

Step 3

The 90% confidence interval for...
