Answer:a)

The 90% confidence interval would be given by (0.296;0.542)

b) For this case we have that:

And we assume independence so then we can use the normal approximation for the distribution of p.

b. Yes.

Step-by-step explanation:Notation and definitions

number of customers with some cash back

random sample taken

estimated proportion of customers with some cash back

true population proportion of customers with some cash back

A

confidence intervalis “a range of values that’s likely to include a population value with a certain degree of confidence. It is often expressed a % whereby a population means lies between an upper and lower interval”.The

margin of erroris the range of values below and above the sample statistic in a confidence interval.Normal distribution, is a “probability distribution that is symmetric about the mean, showing that data near the mean are more frequent in occurrence than data far from the mean”.The population proportion have the following distribution

Part a

In order to find the critical value we need to take in count that we are finding the interval for a proportion, so on this case we need to use the z distribution. Since our interval is at 90% of confidence, our significance level would be given by and . And the critical value would be given by:

The confidence interval for the mean is given by the following formula:

If we replace the values obtained we got:

The 90% confidence interval would be given by (0.296;0.542)

Part bFor this case we have that:

And we assume independence so then we can use the normal approximation for the distribution of p.

b. Yes.
