Use a formula to find sample size.
Here is one:
n = [(zvalue * sd)/E]^2
...where n = sample size, zvalue = 1.96 for 95% confidence, sd = 0.26, E = 0.15, ^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.
