For the following data:
HS | TOEFL Student Count n | TOEFL Sample Mean | TOEFL stdev sx |
---|---|---|---|
CCA | 12 | 529 | 64 |
For the above data a 95% confidence interval has an error E for the TOEFL mean of 36.21 Suppose I want to reduce that Error E to 20 for a 99% confidence interval, how many students would need to be in the sample? Please note that both the desired Error E and the confidence level c are changed.
