Question #2020115: Hypothesis Testing


Question: A recent Gallup poll consisted of 1012 randomly selected adults who were asked whether “cloning of humans should or should not be allowed.” Results showed that 89% of those surveyed indicated that cloning should not be allowed.

a) Among the 1012 adults surveyed, how many said that cloning should not be allowed?

b) If we assume that people are indifferent so that 50% believe that cloning of humans should not be allowed, find the mean and standard deviation for the numbers of people in groups of 1012 that can be expected to believe that such cloning should not be allowed.

c) Based on the preceding results, does the 89% result for the Gallup poll appear to be unusually higher than the assumed rate of 50%? Does it appear that an overwhelming majority of adults believe that cloning of humans should not be allowed?
