Find a 95% confi­dence interval for the proportion of all teens who would respond that way.
d. The 504 parents in the survey were asked, “How harmful to the health of a teenager is the regular use of alcohol—very harmful, fairly harmful, not too harmful, or not harmful at all?” Seventy-seven percent responded that it was very harmful. Find a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of all parents (similar to those in this study) who would respond that way.
