Consider a population with 3 observations: 6, 10 and 12. You use simple random sampling without replacement to select a sample of 2 observations.

- Standard deviation of the sample mean ( σ ) = sqrt(N - n/N-1) * σ /√n = 1.2472

- probability that the sample mean is 9 or larger = p(Z > (9 - 9.3333) / 1.2472)) = p(Z > 0.267) = 0.3947
