    1. An economist wishes to estimate the average family income in a certain population. The population standard deviation is known to be $4,500, and the economist uses a random sample of size = 225.

    a. What is the probability that the sample mean will fall within $800 of the population mean?
    b. What is the probability that the sample mean will exceed the population mean by more than $600.

    Please provide full detail including how the z-table lookup is determined.

    2. The article "Reliability of Domestic Waste Biofilm Reactors" (J. of Envir. Engr., 1995: 785-790) suggests that substrate concentration (mg/cm^3) of influent to a reactor is normally distributed with  = 0.30 and  = 0.06.

    a. What is the probability that the concentration exceeds 0.40?
    b. What is the probability that the concentration is at most 0.25?
    c. How would you characterize the largest 10% of all concentration levels?

    Please provide full detail.
