    7.12

    A random sample is obtained from a population with a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 12.

    A. For a sample of n = 4 scores, would a sample mean of M = 55 be considered an extreme value or is it a fairly typical sample mean?

    B. For a sample mean of n = 36, would a sample mean of M = 55 be considered an extreme value or is it a fairly typical sample mean?

    7.16

    A population of scores forms a normal distribution with of mean of 40 and a standard deviation of 12.

    A. What is the probability of randomly selecting a score less than X = 34?

    B. What is the probability of selecting a sample of n = 9 scores with a mean less than M = 34?

    C. What is the probability of selecting a sample of n = 36 with a mean less than M = 34.
