## Sample size required to estimate proportion

The minimum sample size required to estimate the proportion is
`$$ \begin{aligned} n &= p(1-p)\bigg(\frac{z}{E}\bigg)^2 \end{aligned} $$`

where

- $p$ is the proportion of success
- $z=z_{\alpha/2}$ is the critical value of $Z$
- $E$ is the margin of error.
