Question 10 of 10

0.0/ 5.0 Points

A U.S. government report stated that, “With bank interest rates around 1.0%, 8% of wage earners believe it worthwhile to keep money in a savings account. However, at 3.0% interest, 36% of wage earners believe it worthwhile to keep money in a savings account. The margin of error for both studies is 4 percentage points.”. A proper conclusion from the studies is that:

  A. increasing the interest rate from 1% to 3% will increase the number of persons saving money in a savings account.              

  B. increasing the interest rate may well have no effect on the number of persons saving money in a savings account.              

  C. increasing the interest rate will increase the number of persons saving money in a savings account.
