A researcher conducted a study of the access speed of 45 hard drives and concluded that his maximum error of estimate was 28. 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?
Select one:
a. 720
b. 45
c. 90
d. 180
Please can someone explain me how to do the above problem.
Thanks!
