## Abstract

The problem of determining sample size to take for a tolerance limit L(X), where L(X) is a function of a random sample X1,..., Xn from a distribution with density f(x: θ), and ${\rm Pr}\left\{\int_{L(X)}^{\infty }f(x\colon \theta )dx\geq p\right\}=\gamma$, is investigated. A criterion of "goodness" of tolerance limits is developed and a method given, using this criterion, for solving the sample size problem. Examples are given using the uniform, exponential, and normal distributions as underlying models.
