recheck my answers-statistics?

can someone check these answers to problems that I reworked?

in theory, 19 cases out of 20, the results from such a poll should differ by no more than 1 % point in either direction from that obtained by interviewing all voters”. What is the sample size suggested by this statement?

My answer is 1825

I used the formula: n=1.96^2(p)(q) / E^2 which comes out to 0.182476/.0001=1825

I asked this question before but needed some clarification
