Of the 200 students selected for participation in the survey, only 20% believe the school should select a new and more kindly mascot. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the population proportion of students who believe the mascot should be changed. Based on the sample findings and associated confidence interval, comment on the credibility of a local journalist’s comment that “over 50% of the students would like a new mascot.
