more than one dog and/or cat. The results from a sample of
70 customers are as follows:

• 37 customers own only a dog.
• 26 eustomers own only a cat.
• 7 customers own more than one dog and/or cat.

population mean amount spent in the pet supply store.
b. Construct a 90% confidence interval estimate for the
population proportion of customers who own only a cat.

conduct a similar survey in his store. The manager does not
have access to the information generated by the manager of
Store I. Answer the following questions:

estimating the population mean amount spent in this store
to within ± $1.50 if the standard deviation is estimated to
d. How many customers need to be selected to have 90%
confidence of estimating the population proportion of
customers who own only a cat to within ±0.045?
