n = [(z-value * sd)/E]^2

...where n = sample size, use a z-table to represent the 99% confidence interval, sd = 250, E = 50, ^2 means squared, and * means to multiply.

Plug the values into the formula and finish the calculation. Round your answer to the next highest whole number.

For b), use 50 for sd.

For c), use 95% interval.

For d), use 10 for E.

I hope this will help get you started.
