A university dean wishes to estimate the average number of hours his part-time instructors teach per week. The standard deviation is 2.6 hours. How large a sample must be selected if he wants to be 95% confident of finding whether the true mean differs from the sample mean by 1 hour?

  • statistics -

    Formula:
    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 = 2.6, E = 1, ^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.
