Question 8
According to the National Retail Federation, men spent an average of $484 over a recent Black Friday weekend. Assume that the standard deviation for this population is $146. A random sample of 42 men shoppers over this weekend was selected. What is the probability that the average amount spent on Black Friday weekend from this sample was less than $500?
(round your answer to 2 decimal points)

Question 11
A report by Capital Economics claims the average monthly mortgage payment in Chicago is $1,002. Assume that the standard deviation for monthly mortgage payments in Chicago is $168. A random sample of 55 homeowners in Chicago was selected and found to have an average monthly mortgage payment of $1,030.
Identify the lower bound of the symmetrical interval that includes 95% of the sample means if the true population mean is $1,002.

Question 13
A report by Capital Economics claims the average monthly mortgage payment in Chicago is $1,002. Assume that the standard deviation for monthly mortgage payments in Chicago is $168. A random sample of 55 homeowners in Chicago was selected and found to have an average monthly mortgage payment of $1,030.
