A researcher conducted a study of the access speed of 40 hard drives and concluded that his
maximum error of estimate was 15. If he were to conduct a second study to reduce the
maximum error of estimate to 5, about how many hard drives should he include in his new
sample?

• statistics -

SEm = SD/√n

15 = SD/√40 (Calculate SD and insert below.)

5 = SD/√?

A researcher conducted a study of the access speed of 35 hard drives and concluded that his maximum error of estimate was 35. 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?
