    Answer:  95% confidence interval would be (0.449, 0.511)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since we have given that

    n = 1022

    p = 48% = 0.48

    We need to find the 95% confidence interval first.

    z = 1.96

    Margin of error would be

    z\sqrt{\dfrac{p(1-p)}{n}}\\\\=1.96\times \sqrt{\dfrac{0.48\times 0.52}{1022}}\\\\=0.031

    95% confidence interval would be

    p\pm 0.031\\\\=(0.48-0.031,0.48+0.031)\\\\=(0.449,0.511)

    It means true proportion who felt that economic growth is more important than protecting the environment is within 0.449 and 0.511 using 95% confidence.
