In a random sample of 50 undergraduate students at a college, it was found that 44 students regularly access social networking websites from their college library. What is the margin of error for the true proportion of all undergraduates who access social networking sites from their college library?

I cannot seem to figure out the margin of error... :/

  • Statistics -

    Phat = 44/50 = .88
    mean of error
    Sqrt(.88* .12/50)
    = ?

    sqrt(.88*.12/50) = about .046 hope this helps hunny
