Over the past season melon farmers suffered severely from drought conditions. In order to compensate farmers for their loss within the amount budgeted the Risk Management Bureau (RMB) needed to estimate the average loss of production per acre in Johnston County North Carolina within a specified margin of error. If the population standard deviation for the average loss was 16 tons per acre determine the margin of error for estimating the mean loss per acre for a confidence level of 95% for sample sizes of farmers ranging from 289 324 and 361.
