  1. Use a formula to find sample size.

    Here is one:
    n = [(z-value * sd)/E]^2
    ...where n = sample size, z-value will be found using a z-table to represent the 98% confidence interval, sd = 16, E = 4, ^2 means squared, and * means to multiply.

    Plug the values into the formula and finish the calculation. Round your answer to the next highest whole number.

    Hope this helps.
