    In a population of 150 women, the heights of the women are normally distributed with a mean of 64.6 inches and a standard deviation of 3.2 inches. If 36 women are selected at random, find the mean,μx , and standard deviation, σx, of the population of sample means. Assume that the sampling is done without replacement and use a finite population correction factor.
