The 96% CI on the death rate from lung cancer is (0.4177, 0.4823).

Step-by-step explanation:

In a sample with a number n of people surveyed with a probability of a success of , and a confidence level of , we have the following confidence interval of proportions.

In which

z is the z-score that has a p-value of .

Of 1000 randomly selected cases of lung cancer, 450 resulted in death within 5 years.

This means that

96% confidence level

So , z is the value of Z that has a p-value of , so .

The lower limit of this interval is:

The upper limit of this interval is:

The 96% CI on the death rate from lung cancer is (0.4177, 0.4823).
