estimate is correct. If the standard deviation is $1050, how
large a sample is needed to be accurate within $200?

  • 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 = 1050, E = 200, ^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.
