##### Reference no: EM1315741

The annual starting salaries for college graduates with business administration degrees are believed to have a standard deviation of approximately \$2000. Assume that 95% confidence interval estimate of the annual starting salary is desired. How large a sample should be taken if the desired margin of error E is:

a. E = \$500? n = ________________________

b. E = \$200? n = ________________________

c. E = \$100? n = ________________________
