Several types of analysis enable you to solve for either total sample size or sample size per group. The sample size per group
choice assumes equal group sizes. When solving for total sample size, the group sizes can be equal or unequal. Select the
desired quantity on the **Solve For** tab. An example of these options is shown in Figure 78.57.

For either of the two sample size options, you must specify one or more values for power on the **Power** tab. If you frequently use the same values for power, set them as the default in the Preferences window, which is accessed
by → . Changing preferences affects only projects that you create after the change; existing projects are not affected.

If you select total sample size, you must specify whether the group sizes are equal or unequal. Select the appropriate option
on the **Sample Size** tab. For unequal group sizes, you must specify the relative sample sizes for the two groups. For information about providing
relative sample sizes, see the section Using Unequal Group Sizes.

When solving for either power or total sample size, you might have unequal group sizes. If so, you must provide relative sample sizes for the groups. Weights must be greater than 0 but do not have to sum to 1.

Select the **Sample Size** tab. Enter total sample sizes of 30 and 60 in the **Total N** table. Select the option and click , as seen in Figure 78.58.

Figure 78.59 displays the window in which you can enter relative sample sizes. As an example, enter 2 for the first group and 1 for the second. In this case, you are sampling the drug treatment group twice as often as the control group.

The weights control how the total sample size is divided between the two groups. In the example, the sample size for groups 1 and 2 is 20 and 10, respectively, for a total sample size of 30.
