Multiply 132 million by 90% or 0.90:
\(\displaystyle{0.90}{\left({132}{m}{i}{l}{l}{i}{o}{n}\right)}={118.8}{m}{i}{l}{l}{i}{o}{n}\)
To the nearest million,
120 million

In 2014, the Centers for Disearse reported the percentage of people 18 years of age and older who smoke. Suppose that a study designed to collect new data on smokers and nonsmokers uses a preliminary estimate of the proportion who smoke of 0.30.
a) How large a sample should be taken to estimate the proportion of smokers in the population with a margin of error of 0.02? Use 95% confidence.(Round your answer up to the nearest integer.)
b)Assume that the study uses your sample size recommendation in part (a) and finds 470 smokers. What is the point estimate of the proportion of smokers in the population? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
c) What is the 95% confidence interval for the proportion of smokers in the population? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

Airlines schedule about 5.5 hours of flying time for an A320 Airbus to fly from Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles International Airport. Airlines schedule about 4.5 hours of flying time for the reverse direction. The distance between these airports is about 2,300 miles. They allow about 0.4 hour for takeoff and landing.
a. From this information, estimate (to the nearest 5 mph) the average wind speed the airlines assume in making their schedule.
b. What average airplane speed (to the nearest 5 mph) do the airlines assume in making their schedule?

Assume that a ball of charged particles has a uniformly distributednegative charge density except for a narrow radial tunnel throughits center, from the surface on one side to the surface on the opposite side. Also assume that we can position a proton any where along the tunnel or outside the ball. Let \(\displaystyle{F}_{{R}}\) be the magnitude of the electrostatic force on the proton when it islocated at the ball's surface, at radius R. As a multiple ofR, how far from the surface is there a point where the forcemagnitude is 0.44FR if we move the proton(a) away from the ball and (b) into the tunnel?

A new vaccine was tested to see if it could prevent the ear infections that many infants suffer from. Babies about a year old were randomly divided into two groups. One group received vaccinations, and the other did not. The following year, only 328 of 2460 vaccinated children had ear infections, compared to 508 of 2453 unvaccinated children. Complete parts a) through c) below. a) Are the conditions for inference satisfied? A. Yes. The data were generated by a randomized experiment, less than 10% of the population was sampled, the groups were independent, and there were more than 10 successes and failures in each group. B. No. It was not a random sample. C. No. The groups were not independent. D. No. More than 10% of the population was sampled.
