Thank you for you time it is appreciated on this end believe me

2. P(mean of A) if mean P(A) = .6

If we have six Apples and four Oranges in a box
then P(A) = .6 when we draw one thing at random.

If we have a whole bunch of boxes and on the average there are six apples in each then P(A) = .6
BUT
The probability that we will draw that mean on any draw depends on how the apples are distributed around six in the boxes.
If all the boxes had 6 apples, then P(of the mean of 6) would be 1
but if half had seven and half had five, P(mean A) would be zero. In other words I think the answer depends on your distribution and its standard deviation from the mean.
