    <br>a) Using the Central Limit theorem, we can say that for this reasonably large size sample, the population mean is roughly equal to sample mean and hence the Expected Value = mu = 5
    <br>
    <br>Standard deviation of the sample means = Standard error = SE = Sigma/sqrt(n) = 3/sqrt(36) = 0.5
    <br>
    <br>probability that the sample mean will be at least ...
