The average temperature in households is 67.6 degrees F. The standard deviation is 4.2 degrees F. A random sample of 51 households is to be selected
What is the probability that the average of this sample will be within 1.4 STANDARD ERRORS of the population mean?

• statistics -

mean = 67.6

standard deviation = 4.2

sample size = 51

Standard error: sd/√n = 4.2/√51 = 0.588

Next step:
67.6 - 1.4 = 66.2
67.6 + 1.4 = 69

Use z-scores:
z = (x - mean)/sd

Therefore:

z = (66.2 - 67.6)/0.588 = -2.38
z = (69 - 67.6)/0.588 = 2.38

Finally:
Check z-table for the probability between the above two z-scores. This will be your answer.

I hope this helps.
