A statistics professor asked her students whether or not they were registered to vote. In a sample of 50 of her students (randomly sampled from her 700 students), 35 said they were registered to vote.

Find a 95% confidence interval for the true proportion of the professor's students who were registered to vote. (Make sure to check any necessary conditions and to state a conclusion in the context of the problem.)

 If many random samples were taken, 95% of the confidence intervals produced would contain the actual percentage of the professor's students who are registered to vote.

 There is no probability involved-once the interval is constructed, the true proportion of the professor's students who were registered to vote is in the interval or it is not.

 A statistics professor asked her students whether or not they were registered to vote. In a sample of 50 of her students (randomly sampled from her 700 students), 35 said they were registered to vote.According to a September 2004 Gallup poll, about 73% of 18- to 29-year-olds said that they were registered to vote. Does the 73% figure from Gallup seem reasonable for the professor's class? Explain.

 The 73% figure from Gallup seems reasonable since 73% lies in our confidence interval.

 ME = z*0.04 = 1.96n =   = 473.24 ≈ 474Note: Since there are only 700 students in the professor's class, she cannot sample this many students without violating the 10% condition!
