Chapter 10: Confidence Intervals for Proportions

Slide 10- 1

The higher the level of confidence we want, the narrower our confidence interval becomes. A. True B. False

Slide 10- 2

The higher the level of confidence we want, the narrower our confidence interval becomes. A. True B. False

Slide 10- 3

In constructing a confidence interval for a proportion, we add and subtract the _________ from the sample proportion.

A. margin of error B. critical value C. confidence level D. standard error

Slide 10- 7

We have calculated a 95% confidence interval and would prefer to have a smaller margin of error without losing any confidence. In order to do this, we can I. change the z∗ value to a smaller number. II. take a larger sample. III. take a smaller sample. A. I only

B. II only C. III only D. I and II

Slide 10- 9

Which is true about a 98% confidence interval for a population proportion based on a given sample? I. We are 98% confident that the sample proportion is in our interval. II. The interval is narrower than a 95% confidence interval. III. The interval is wider than a 95% confidence interval. A. I only

C. 400 D. 1600
