1. Example of a proportional confidence interval formula:

CI95 = p ± (1.96)[√(pq/n)]
...where p = x/n, q = 1 - p, and n = sample size.
Note: ± 1.96 represents 95% confidence interval.

For p in your problem: 350/757 = .46
For q: 1 - p = 1 - .46 = .54
n = 757

I let you take it from here to calculate the interval.
