    The Food Marketing Institute shows that 17% of households spend more than $100 per week on groceries. Assume that the population proportion is 0.17.

    a. If a random sample of 800 households is selected from the population, what is the probability that the sample proportion will be between 0.15 and 0.19?

    b. If a random sample of 1600 households is selected from the population, what is the probability that the sample proportion will be between 0.15 and 0.19?

    c. If a random sample of 1000 households is selected from the population, what is the probability that the sample proportion will be less than 0.18?

    a) Standard Error =(p*q/n)^0.5=(0.17*0.83/800)^0.5=0.013280625
    z=(p-P bar)/Standard error
    For 0.15, we have z= (0.15-0.17)/0.0133=-1.50
    For 0.19, we have z= ...
