The disease was detected in 98 of the mule deer in the sample.

b. + .005 for a 99% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of all deer in the region that have CWD. Treat the original study as a pilot sample.
c. + .003 for a 95% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of all deer in the region that have CWD. Treat the original study as a pilot sample.
