    6.1
    Consider the following data to be a population of N=20 values

    ______________________________________________________________

    5 3 2 6 6 7 3 3 6 7
    7 9 7 5 3 12 6 10 7 2
    ______________________________________________________________

    a. Compute the population mean
    b. A random sample of n=6 produced the following numbers: 6,12,10,3,2,2. Find the sample mean and determine the sampling error for this sample.
    c. Find the range of extreme sampling error for a sample of 6. (Hint: Find the lowest possible sample mean and highest possible sample mean)
