You want to obtain a sample to estimate a population proportion. Based on previous evidence, you believe the population proportion is approximately 23%. You would like to be 98% confident that your estimate is within 1% of the true population proportion. How large of a sample size is required?

Step 1

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the value of *z* using MINITAB:

- Choose
**Graph > Probability Distribution Plot**choose**View Probability****> OK.** - From
**Distribution**, choose ‘**Normal**’ distribution. - Click the
**Shaded Area** - Choose
**Probability**and**Both Tail**for the region of the curve to shade. - Enter the
**Probability****value**as**2**. - Click
**OK**.

Output using the MINITAB software is given below:

Step 2

From the output, the value of *z* is 1.282 for 98% confidence...
