95% confidence level implies `alpha=.05,alpha/2=.025`



The confidence interval we seek is `hatp-z_(alpha/2)sqrt((hatp(1-hatp))/n)<p<hatp+z_(alpha/2)sqrt((hatp(1-hatp))/n)`

From a table, `z_(alpha/2)=z_(.025)=1.96`


or approximately:


So p lies between 16.6% and 23.4% with a 95% confidence level.
