  3. You are asked by the owner of a local hotel chain to develop a customer satisfaction survey to determine the percentage of customers who are dissatisfied with service. In the past year, 20,000 customers were serviced. The owner desires a 95 percent level of confidence with an allowable statistical error of ±0.01. From past estimates, she believes that about 3.5 percent of customers have expressed dissatisfaction. What sample size should you use for this survey?  Explain your answer.

Why? (20 points)

In the past, an almost identical repair required 22.75 minutes, with a standard deviation of 0.3 minutes.
