Question description

### Question 4

Polls showed that the two main candidates in the 2004 presidential election were nearly tied on the day before the election. To predict the winner, a newspaper would like to have a poll which has margin of error of 5%. Roughly how large a sample would be needed for such a poll? (Hint: since candidates are nearly tied, each has roughly 50% of the vote.)
