A smart phone manufacturer is interested in constructing a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of smart phones that break before the warranty expires. 90 of the 1595 randomly selected smart phones broke before the warranty expired. Round answers to 4 decimal places where possible. a. With 90% confidence the proportion of all smart phones that break before the warranty expires is between ? and ? b. If many groups of 1595 randomly selected smart phones are selected, then a different confidence interval would be produced for each group. About ?percent of these confidence intervals will contain the true population proportion of all smart phones that break before the warranty expires and about ? percent will not contain the true population proportion.
