Can you show me how to figure out a sample size of N=60? What would the equation look like and how would I explain it to a class?

1. There are statistical formulas to figure sample size based on certain criteria. There are also random number tables to determine samples. Since it is difficult to know what you are specifically asking here, I'm not sure how to answer your question without more detail.
