Americans    80 * 0.65 = 56

Europeans  90* 0.7= 63 

total sample is 170 and selected 119 

potion that is rich is 70% of both the Americans and Europeans.

99% halved is 0.445 on the t table it yields approximately 1.96

mean is 119 and margin of error is 1.96*0.99

the propotional interval is 119 - 1.9404=120.9404    or 119+1.94.4 =117.0496
