A doctor wants to estimate the HDL cholesterol of all 20-29 year old females. How many subjects are needed to estimate the HDL cholesterol within 2 points with 99%confidence assuming s=17.8 based on earlier studies? Suppose the doctor would be content with 90% confidence. How does the decrease in cofidence affect the sample size required?

A: A 99% confidence level requires ___ subjects

B: A 90% confidence level requires ___ subjects

2.58 = 99% confidence interval
1.645 = 90% confidence interval

Use a formula to find sample size.

Here is one:
n = [(z-value * sd)/E]^2
...where n = sample size, z-value = values above for the intervals needed, sd = 17.8, E = .02, ^2 means squared, and * means to multiply.

Plug the values into the formula and finish the calculations. Round your answers to the next highest whole number.

I'll let you take it from here.
