A survey is being planned to determine the mean amount of time corporation executives watch television. A pilot survey indicated that the mean time per week is 12 hours, with a standard deviation of 3 hours. It is desired to estimate the mean viewing time within one quarter hour. The 0.95 degree of confidence is to be used. How many executives should be surveyed?

Is the following soluntion correct?

[(1.96*3)/0.25]^2 = 553.1 => 554

Population mean = 14

Population standard deviation = 2.5

Margin error = 1/4 = 0.25

level of confidence = 0.95

z = 1.96

n =[(1.96*3)/0.25]^2

=553.19

=554

25. E=.04,Z=1.96,p=.6, find N.

N=576.24=577(round up)
