A simple random sample of size n=11 is obtained from a population with μ=68 and σ=17.
(a) What must be true regarding the distribution of the population in order to use the normal model to compute probabilities involving the sample mean? Assuming that this condition is true, describe the sampling distribution of barx.
(b) Assuming the normal model can be used, determine P(bar x < 71.4).
(c) Assuming the normal model can be used, determine P(bar x ≥ 69.6).
The distribution of population must be normal and using central limiting theorem the distribution of is normal with mean and standard deviation
We define the standard random variable Z as
b) Using Normal table we have
