(a) [5 pt] Write down the formula for P ( Y = x ), and please be sure to mention the values x for which the formula is valid. (b) [4 pt] Determine the mean μ and standard deviation σ of Y . Please write down the formula you used, and clearly label your answers. (c) [6 pt] Compute P ( μ - 2 σ < Y μ - σ ). You may wish to draw a picture of the situation. 2. A random sample of size 100 from a population where we only know the mean μ to be 145 and the standard deviation σ to be 28. (a) [5 pt] Compute the mean and standard deviation of the sample mean X 100 . Please write out the formulas you use, and clearly label your answers. (b) [5 pt] Find a value c so that P ( X 100 < c ) = . 8413.
