Thank you very much for helping out and confirming that I understood it, your answer was more than helpful! Dec3 comment How big is a large sample? I don't understand where you got the 900 from, it can't be the same 900 as the one in n=900p because it has a p next to it and the sample size is 450, (it took me almost a year to understand your answer, mainly because I had to learn the definitions first). P.S. how do you do the math like that?
