Of 525 samples of seafood purchased from various kinds of food stores in different regions of a country and genetically compared to standard gene fragments that can identify the species, 51% were mislabeled, a) Construct a 99% confidence interval for the proportion of all seafood sold in the country that is mislabeled or misidentified. b) Explain what your confidence interval says about seafood sold in the country. c) A government spokesperson claimed that the sample size was too small, relative to the billions of pieces of seafood sold each year, to generalize. Is this criticism valid? a) What is the 99% confidence interval? The 99% confidence interval is from% to %. (Round to one decimal place as needed.)
