The travel-to-work time for residents of the 15 largest cities in the United States is reported in the 2003 Information Please Almanac. Suppose that a preliminary simple random sample of residents of San Francisco is used to develop a planning value of 6.01 minutes for the population standard deviation.
1.If we want to estimate the population mean travel-to-work time for San Francisco residents with a margin of error of 5 minutes, what sample size should be used? Assume 95% confidence.
2.If we want to estimate the population mean travel-to-work time for San Francisco residents with a margin of error of 2 minutes, what sample size should be used? Assume 95% confidence.
