this is what I believe is:

mean of the Sampling distrib of the proportion = .60

standard deviation of the sampling distr of the proportion = .0283

But I am not sure what to do after this. The answer in back of the book is .1727. I can not get that.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks
