    The population proportion of 5 year old’s who live with only one​ parent, for city & sample is 0.350 & 0.371 respectively.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We have , In one​ city, there are a total of 1704
    ,  5 year old children of whom 598  live with one parent only. Among a sample of 606  of the 5 year old children from this​ city, 225  live with one parent only.

    Population proportion is the ratio of Number of 5 year old child’s with one parent only to Total Number of 5 year old children. i.e.

    Proportion = \frac{Number(Child-single-parent)}{Number(Children)}

    Population proportion for city:

    Proportion = \frac{Number(Child-single-parent)}{Number(Children)}

    Proportion = \frac{598}{1704}

    Proportion = 0.350

    Population proportion for sample:

    Proportion = \frac{Number(Child-single-parent)}{Number(Children)}

    Proportion = \frac{225}{606}

    Proportion = 0.371

    ∴ The population proportion of 5 year old’s who live with only one​ parent, for city & sample is 0.350 & 0.371 respectively.
