Assume that a population is normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. Would it be unusual for the mean of a sample of 3 to be 115 or more? Why or why not?

Use z-scores:

z = (x - mean)/(sd/√n)

x = 115

mean = 100

sd = 15

n = 3

Once you have z, use a z-table to determine probability. If the probability is low, then it would be unusual for the mean of a sample of 3 to be 115 or more.

I hope this will help.
