Unformatted text preview: & 6.13. a. The population from which we are randomly sampling n = 35 measurements is not necessarily normally distributed. However, the sampling distribution of x does have an approximately normal distribution, with mean and standard deviation n / .

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 and standard deviation...
