The 99% confidence interval estimate of the percentage of adult Americans aged 18 and older that have donated blood in the past two years is between 16.061% and 20.193%

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 zscore that has a pvalue of .

In a survey of 2306 adult Americans aged 18 and older, it was found that 418 of them have donated blood in the past two years.

This means that

99% confidence level

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

The lower limit of this interval is:

The upper limit of this interval is:

Confidence interval for the percentage:

Proportions multiplied by 100%. So

0.16061*100% = 16.061%

0.20193 = 20.193%

The 99% confidence interval estimate of the percentage of adult Americans aged 18 and older that have donated blood in the past two years is between 16.061% and 20.193%
