# The temperature of a solution will be estimated by taking n independent readings and averaging them. Each reading is unbiased, with a standard deviation of = 0.5oC. How many readings must be taken so that the probability is 0.90 that the average is within 0.1oC of the actual temperature?

The temperature of a solution will be estimated by taking n independent readings and averaging them. Each reading is unbiased, with a standard deviation of σ = 0.5oC. How many readings must be taken so that the probability is 0.90 that the average is within ±0.1oC of the actual temperature?
