A psychologist is interested in constructing a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of people who accept the theory that a person's spirit is no more than the complicated network of neurons in the brain. 68 of the 807 randomly selected people who were surveyed agreed with this theory. Round answers to 4 decimal places where possible.

a. With 90% confidence the proportion of all people who accept the theory that a person's spirit is no more than the complicated network of neurons in the brain is between___and___ .

b. If many groups of 807 randomly selected people are surveyed, then a different confidence interval would be produced from each group. About__ percent of these confidence intervals will contain the true population proportion of all people who accept the theory that a person's spirit is no more than the complicated network of neurons in the brain and about____ percent will not contain the true population proportion.
