A researcher is interested in
estimating the average salary of teachers in a large urban
school district. She wants to be 95% confident that her
estimate is correct. If the standard deviation is $1050, how
large a sample is needed to be accurate within $200?

Formula:
n = [(zvalue * sd)/E]^2
...where n = sample size, zvalue will be 1.96 using a ztable 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.
