# Determining the Sampling Distribution

Question: If you wish to estimate a population mean with a sampling distribution error SE = 0.28 using a 95% confidence interval and you know from prior sampling that sigma^2 is approximately equal to 5.4, how many observations would have to be included in your sample?
