## Question:

A UCLA researcher claims that the life span of mice can be extended by as much as 25% when the calories in their food are reduced by approximately 40% from the time they are weaned. The restricted diets are enriched to normal levels by vitamins and protein. Assuming that it is known from previous studies that a = 5.8 months, how many mice should be included in our sample if we wish to be 99% confident that the mean life span of the sample will be within 2 months of the population mean for all mice subjected to this reduced diet?
