Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The Formula for the Margin of Error.

E = zα/2/(2√ n) where E is the error we require, we need to standardize the data

alpha is 0.05.we divide by 2 to get 1.96/(2*289*0.5)=0.05765 about 5.76% error

confidence interval

-0.022<0.28<0.3376

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
