However, the sampling distribution of x does have an approximately normal distribution, with mean μ and standard deviation n / σ .

No. There are many possible values for x , the actual percent tax savings, as given by the probability distribution for x . 6.16. a. The sample mean x is normally distributed, since the original strength measurements are Normally distributed, with mean μ and standard deviation 10 / 2 / = n σ .
