**MathGuru**, Monday, September 13, 2010 at 8:11pmFormula:

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

...where n = sample size, z-value will be 1.96 using a z-table to represent the 95% confidence interval, sd = square root of 14 (standard deviation is equal to the square root of the variance), E = 2, ^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.
