A survey is being conducted of voters’ opinions on several different issues.
(i) What is the overall margin of error of the survey, at 95% confidence, if it is based on a
simple random sample of 1111 voters.
(B) A political party had claimed that it has the support of 23% of the electorate. Of the
voters in the sample above, 234 stated that they support the party. Is this sufficient
evidence to reject the party’s claim, at the 5% level of significance?

does anyone know how to work this out. i can do the first part easy its 1/√1111 i dont know how to do the second part b

Maybe you should ask the teacher who posed you this question for some advice, instead of asking us to do your homework?

Why is that the correct value for part (a)?

What does margin of error mean? What does the poll say the actual percentage is? What is the 5% level of significance?
(∫|p|2)(∫|q|2) ≥ (∫|pq|)2
Thanks, skeptical scientist, for knowing symbols and giving them to me.
