Homework Help: Statistics

Posted by Sarah on Monday, September 13, 2010 at 9:04pm.

An educator wants to estimate the proportion of school children in Boston who are living with only one parent. Since their report is to be published, they want a reasonably accurate estimate. However, since their funding is limited, they do not want to collect a larger sample than necessary. They hope to use a sample size such that, with probability 0.95, the error will not exceed 0.04. What sample size will ensure this, regardless of what sample proportion value occurs when they gather the sample?
