**MathGuru**, Friday, July 23, 2010 at 7:56pmTry this formula:

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

...where n = sample size needed; use .8 for p and .2 for q (q = 1 - p). E = maximum error, which is .03 (3%) in the problem. Z-value is found using a z-table (for 98%, the value is 2.33). Also, ^2 means squared and * means to multiply.

I hope this will help get you started.
