(a) Using the random sample collected by the researcher, calculate a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of houses for sale in Victoria that have a finished basement.

(b) After calculating a confidence interval for the proportion of houses for sale in

Victoria that have a finished basement, the researcher felt that the obtained confidence interval was probably too wide to be of any practical use to realtors or potential buyers.
