Answer #1

Solution:

Given that ,

= 209

= 35

A sample of size n = 42 is taken from this population.

Let be the mean of sample.

The sampling distribution of the is approximately normal with

Mean = = 209

SD =      = 35/​42 =   5.400617

Now,

P[sum of sample is less than 8400]

=P[sample mean is less than 8400/42]

= P[ < 200]

= P[( - )/ < (200 - 209)/5.400617]

= P[Z < -1.67]

= 0.0475
