# Problem Set 5.3

**Problem Set 5.3**

1. Suppose a pharmaceutical company wants to do a study of the commissions of its sales force. Let's assume that there are 4,300 sales people and the population mean for the sales force is $52,400 in commissions and has a population standard deviation of $3,500. What is the probability that a simple random sample of 50 members of the sales force will have commissions within $400 of the population mean?

3. Suppose that you have a large number of potatoes. The mean weight of the potatoes is 7.4 ounces with a standard deviation of 2.2 ounces. We may assume a normal distribution.

a) If you choose 25 potatoes at random, what is the probability that the mean of this sample of 25 potatoes is between 7 and 8 ounces?

b) If you choose 45 potatoes at random, what is the probability that the mean of this sample of 45 potatoes is less than 7 ounces?
