a) If the claim by Get-A-Grip is true, what is the mean of the sampling distribution of for samples of size ? (2 pts)

b) If the claim by Get-A-Grip is true, what is the standard deviation of the sampling distribution of for samples of size ? (4 pts)

c) If the distribution of tire life is approximately normal, what is the probability that the mean of a random sample of size n = 4 of tire lifetimes will be less than 20,000 miles? (6 pts)
