**MathGuru**, Monday, April 1, 2013 at 6:58pm(a)Formula to find sample size:

n = [(z-value)^2 * p * q]/E^2

... where n = sample size, z-value is found using a z-table for 99% confidence, p = 0.62, q = 1 - p, ^2 means squared, * means to multiply, and E = 0.028.

Plug values into the formula and calculate n.

(b) Use p = 0.5 and q = 0.5

Recalculate.

I hope this will help get you started.
