Assume we draw a simple random sample from a population having a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 16. What is the probability that a sample mean will be within plusorminus two of the population mean for each of the following sample sizes?
(a.) n = 50 ____________
(b.) n = 100
(c.) n = 200 ____________
(d.) n = 400 ____________

μ ± 2SE will always include approximately 95% of the possible means. However, the range of the possible means for the 95% will be smaller as the n increases.
SE (Standard Error of the mean) = SD/sq.root of n
(For smaller samples, you might want to use n1.)
I hope this helps.
