# Confidence Interval

What is the predicted value for x = 10, if the regression equation is:

y' = 106.8 - 3.1x?

If alpha/2 = 0.02, the confidence interval is the ______% confidence interval.

The Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons states that 80 out of every 100 women wear shoes that are too small for their feet. A researcher wants to be 98% confident that this proportion is within 2 units of the true number. From a previous study, the standard deviation is known to be 12 out of every 100. How large a sample is necessary?
