Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The margin of error for a 99% confidence interval for each study can be found as follows: \[\large MoE(N.Ga)=2.576\sqrt{\frac{0.84(10.84)}{3000}}\] \[\large MoE(S.Ga)=2.576\sqrt{\frac{0.75(10.75)}{2000}}\] Note: The margin of error can be converted into a percentage, if necessary, by multiplying by 100.
