The nicotine content in a single cigarette of a particular brand has a distribution with mean 0.5 mg and standard deviation 0.1 mg. If 100 of these cigarettes are analyzed, what is the probability that the resulting sample mean nicotine content will be less than 0.49? (Round all answers to four decimal places.)

P( < 0.49) =  

Less than 0.47
P( < 0.47) =

ths std of mean is 0.1/sqrt(100)=0.01mg

z = (.49-0.5/.01=-1, 

Pr(x<0.49)=Pr(z<-1) = 0.1587

x=0.47

z= -0.03/.01= -3

Pr(x<0.47) = Pr(z<-3) = 0.0014
