Hi! This was a tough one! Here my solution :) :) ;)

I solved it with a iterative macro for the 1000 cases...inside another iterative macro for the 49 different sample sizes :)

to reach 75% we need 33 people

Good one, think that I'll be using Generate Rows more often now rather than brute force; very elegant.

I took a slightly different approach to this problem. Since I am more familiar with iterations or loops in python, I used the python tool to solve this problem.

Solved. My first time using a macro (and exporting a package)! =)
