The maximum error of estimate with a sample of 300 cell phones is 29.73%

Determining maximum error estimate

The formula for calculating the maximum error of the estimate is expressed as:

ME = √0.25/n

n is the total sample

Given the following parameters

n = 300

Substitute into the formula to have:

ME = √0.25/n

ME = √0.25/300
ME = 0.2973
ME = 29.73%

Hence the maximum error of estimate with a sample of 300 cell phones is 29.73%
