Team Project Part 4 – Confidence Interval Estimates

1. Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate for the population proportion of yellow
candies.
• Sample proportion of yellow candies = 384/1829 = .2099507928
• We constructed a 1-PropZInterval. (Stat, Tests, A:1-PropZInt)
• An x value is needed (384). An N value is needed (1829). And a C-Level is
needed (.99).
• Confidence interval estimate = (.18542, .23448)
• Margin of error = 2.45% or .024524128

2. We are 99% confident that the population proportion of yellow skittles lies between
.18542 and .23448.

3. Construct a 90% confidence interval estimate for the population mean number of candies
per bag.
a. The sample mean number of candies per bag was 59.
b. I used a confidence level of 90% or .90 We constructed a (Stats, Tests, 8-
TInterval)
c. Sample size 1829, the total number of skittles in the sample. The sample mean 59,
was the average amount of skittles found per bag in class sample. Standard
Deviation 2.37.
d. The confidence interval estimate is (58.91, 59.10)
e. We are 90% confident that the population mean is between 58.91 and 59.10

4. We are 90% confident that the population mean number of candies per bag is between
58.91 and 59.10
