I hope I'm posting in the right forum! My daughter has something like the following problem in her college math class: In a random sample of 100 registered voters, 75 people say they will vote for Clinton (the assignment was made up before the election). Using statistical inference, what is the probability that Clinton will receive more than 60 percent of votes in the general election?
I have changed the numbers out of general principle. I hope that it doesn't affect the problem materially. I don't see how to get the answer to this kind of problem. I understand confidence intervals, but I don't see how to get from that to an answer. I hope that I correctly classified the type of problem in the title to the post.
