    A company that sells annuities must base the annual payout on the probability distribution of the length of life of the participants in the plan. Suppose the probability distribution of the lifetimes of the participants is approximately a normal distribution with a mean of 68 years and a standard deviation of 3.5 years.

    A random sample of 36 participants is taken. What is the probability the mean age of plan participants would receive payments beyond age 73?
