Firstly, it is assumed that the sample mean is normally distributed.
For determining the sample size, it is necessary to know the value of the sample standard deviation. If the value of the standard deviation is not known, then use some preliminary data for approximating it.
When the sample size is equal to or greater than 30, the sample standard deviation is approximated to the population standard deviation (σ). The sample size for predetermined error tolerance (E) and confidence interval using the normal distribution is given as follows:
n=(zc×σE)2

The manager of the store in the preceding exercise calculated the residual for each point in the scatterplot and made a dotplot of the residuals.
The distribution of residuals is roughly Normal with a mean of $0 and standard deviation of $22.92.
