From time to time a manufacturer of pre-packed furniture needs to check the mean distance between pairs of holes drilled by a machine in pieces of chipboard to ensure that no change has occurred. It is known from experience that the standard deviation of the distance is 0.43mm. The firm intends to take a random sample of size n, and to calculate a 99% confidence interval for the mean of the population. The width of this interval must be no more than 0.60mm. Calculate the minimum value of n.
