Formula:
n = [(zvalue * sd)/E]^2
...where n = sample size, zvalue will be 2.575 using a ztable to represent the 99% confidence interval, sd = 42, E = 3, ^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.
