Stoaches are fictional creatures distantly related to bigfoot and yeti.

Stoach weights are normally distributed, with a mean of 904g and a standard deviation of 104g.

State the probability that the sample mean of a random sample of 36 stoach weights exceeds 943g.

(Report the probability using at least four decimal places. )

Correct answer:

p =  0.0122

Step-by-step explanation:

m=904 g σ=104 g n=36  s=σ/n=104/36=352=173117.3333 g  p1=N(m,s,X>943g) p1=0.0122  p=p1=0.0122

the answer provided is different to the correct answer should be using the standard error as it's related to sample mean not mean as a whole therefore m = 904 g Standard deviations 104 divide by square root of 36 which is equal to 17.33333333 / 17.3333 (4d. p) then add to the calculator provided this number mean 904 standard deviation 17.3333 above 943 and the answer = 0.0122 (4.d. p)
