A random sample of 1496 respondents of a major metropolitan area was questioned about a number of issues. Construct estimates to the population at the 95% level for each of the results reported next. Express the final confidence interval in percentages (e.g., “between 40% and 45% agreed that premarital sex was always wrong”).

**a.** When asked to agree or disagree with the statement "Internet pornography leads to rape and other sex crimes,” 823 agreed.

**b**. When asked to agree or disagree with the statement "Hand guns should be outlawed,” 650 agreed.

**c.** 375 of the sample agreed that marijuana should be legalized.

**d.** 1023 of the sample said that they had attended a church, synagogue, mosque, or other place of worship at least once within the past month.

**e.** 800 agreed that public elementary schools should have sex education programs starting in the fifth grade.

Expert Solution

To determine

(a)

**To find:**

The 95% confidence interval for the population mean.

**Given:**

The given information is,

A random sample of 1496 respondents of a major metropolitan area was questioned about a number of issues.

When asked to agree or disagree with the statement "Internet pornography leads to rape and other sex crimes,” 823 agreed.

**Approach:**

The confidence interval is an interval estimate from the statistics of the observed data that might contain the true value of the unknown population parameter.

**Formula used:**

For large samples and given sample proportion, the confidence interval (*c.i.*) is given by,

Where,

*Z* is the *Z* score determined by the alpha level and,

*N* is the sample size.

**Calculation:**

From the given information, the sample size is 1496,

Sample proportion is,

And the population proportion is

For 95%, the *Z* value is given as,

For large samples and given sample proportion, the confidence interval (*c*
