A.  Sample mean = 7+1+6+3+6+7/6 = 30/6 =5

B.  SS ( sum of squares ) = (7-1)^2 + (5-1)^2 + (5-6)^2 + (5-3)^2 + (5-6)^2 + (5-7)^2

                                        =. 4 + 16 + 1 + 4 + 1 + 4

                                        =. 34

C.  sample standard deviation = S = sqrt ( 34) = 5.83

D.  Standard error of the mean = mean/sqrt (n) = 5/sqrt(6) = 5/2.45 = 2.04

E.  z score is used when the standard deviation of the population is known. t statistic is used when the standard deviation of the population is not known.  So in the formula for the z score you use the mean and the standard deviation of the population whereas for the t statistic formula the sample mean and the standard error is used.
