Find the margin of error for a 95% confidence interval for estimating the population mean when the sample standard deviation equals 100, with a sample size of (i) 400, (ii) 1600. What is the effect of the sample size? (b) Find the margin of error for estimating the population mean when the sample standard deviation equals 100 for a sample size of 400, using confidence level (i) 95%, (ii) 99%. What is the effect of the choice of confidence level?



I just don't understand how do I put this into an equation?
