7.21 Time spent using e-mail per session is normally distributed,
with m = 8, minutes and s = 2 minutes, if you
select a random sample of 25 sessions,
a. what is the probability that the sample mean is between
7.8 and 8.2 minutes?
c. If you select a random sample of 100 sessions, what is
the probability that the sample mean is between 7.8 and
