Customer Question

The population mean annula salary for environmental compliance specialists is about $63,500 with a standard deviation of $6100. A random sample of 35 specialists is drawn from this population. What is the probability that the mean salary of the sample is less than $60,000?

Thank you for using the site. I'll be happy to help you with this problem.

Since the population standard deviation is known, you can use the z-statistic for this problem. The z-value is:

z = (60,000 - 63,500) / (6,100 / sqrt(35)) = -3.39

The probability is then P(x < 60,000) = P(z < -3.39) = 0.0003.

Please feel free to ask if you have any questions about this solution.
