Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 2

Given,

Sample size,

Confidence interval = 0.565, 0.695

The sample proportion iss at the middle of the confidence interval, ie;

Boundaries of the confidence interval is,

Substituting the values,

Subtract 0.63 from both side:

By dividing both sides by  , we get:

?

Now, we can say that the confidence interval is the probability that the sample proportion is between  = 1.35and   = -1.35.
