**Unformatted text preview: **will have maximum error less than what value? (Hint : Z 0.01 = 2.33) 4. Suppose we would like the maximum error of our average to be less than 2 mm. in 98% of our samples. Then what size sample do we need? ANSWERS 1. x = 80.1 2. 2 . 6 / 2 . 1 / = = n s 3. E= z α /2 σ / √ n = (2.33 x 10)/4 = 5.825 4. n = [z α /2 σ /E] 2 round up = [2.33 x 10/2] 2 =135.7 so rounding up n=136. We need a sample of 136 or more. 1...
