You intend to estimate a population proportion with a confidence interval. The data suggests that the normal distribution is a reasonable approximation for the binomial distribution in this case.

While it is an uncommon confidence level, find the critical value that corresponds to a confidence level of 94.8%.
(Report answer accurate to three decimal places with appropriate rounding.)
