Formula:
n = [(zvalue^2 * p * q)]/E^2
...where n = sample size, zvalue will be 2.58 using a ztable to represent the 99% confidence interval, p and q represent proportions, E = .04, ^2 means squared, and * means to multiply.
Note: p and q will both be .5 if no value is stated.
Plug the values into the formula and finish the calculation. Round your answer to the next highest whole number.
