Homework Help: Probability-Math

Posted by Alia on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 12:22am.

Please forgive me for posting this for the 3rd time but I really need to learn this:
A researcher conducted a study of the access speed of 45 hard drives and concluded that his maximum error of estimate was 28. If he were to conduct a second study to reduce the maximum error of estimate to 7, about how many hard drives should he include in his new sample?
Select one:
a. 720
b. 45
c. 90
d. 180
Please can someone explain me how to do the above problem.
My working: 28/7 = 4, so 4^2=16
16 x 45 =720.
I am not sure if the above working is correct but please i really need help in learning this problem (question). So, Please can anyone assist me by showing the correct method for this.
Thanks.
