**MathGuru**, Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 5:32pmFormula 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 90% confidence (which is 1.645), p = .48 (when no value is stated in the problem p = .50), q = 1 - p, ^2 means squared, * means to multiply, and E = .02.

Plug values into the formula and calculate n.

I hope this will help get you started.
