Find the continuous probability distribution that approximates this discrete probability distribution and give its parameters. (6) From Lecture 18 recall the claim of the small town in Ontario: “Average House price in the town is $234,000 and the s.d. is $70,000.” You have surveyed 49 houses in the town and found a sample mean of $270,000. If what the town says is true, 95% of the time the sample mean should be in what interval? Calculate that interval and interpret it. What can we conclude from the fact that 270,000 is not in the interval?...
