The function `mu.freq`

returns the required sample size
to obtain a confidence interval of given length and confidence level for a normal mean.

1 | ```
mu.freq(len, lambda, level = 0.95)
``` |

`len` |
The desired total length of the confidence interval for the mean |

`lambda` |
Known precision (reciprocal of variance) |

`level` |
The desired confidence level (e.g., 0.95) |

Assume that a random sample will be collected in order to estimate
the mean of a normally distributed random variable with known precision *lambda* (precision is the reciprocal of the variance).
The function `mu.freq`

returns the required sample size to attain the
desired length *len* and confidence level *level* for a confidence interval
for the mean from a **frequentist** point of view.

The required sample size given the inputs to the function.

The sample size returned by this function is exact.
