Given :

p^ lies exactly in the middle of the confidence interval and thus is the sum of the boundaries of the confidence interval divided by 2:
The margin of error is equal to the difference between the boundaries, divided by two, and is equal to half the width of the confidence interval:
The confidence interval can then be rewritten as 0.1302±0.0868
