For your sampling experiment in Problem 5.48,

what is the average minimum bid in millions that you found (as a decimal number without a $ sign)?


5.48. A government agency is putting a large project out for low bid. Bids are expected from 10 different contractors and will have a normal distribution with a mean of $3.5 million and a standard deviation of $0.25 million.
