Statistics

The manufacturer of a new compact car claims the miles per gallon (mpg) for the gasoline consumption is mound-shaped and symmetric with a mean of 24.6 mpg and a standard deviation of 11.2 mpg. If 30 such cars are tested, what is the probability the average mpg achieved by these 30 cars will be greater than 27

  1. Z = (score-mean)/SEm

    SEm = SD/√n

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability related to the Z score.
