StatisticsQ&A LibraryDetermine if the finite correction factor should be used. If so, use it in your calculations when you find the probability. In a sample of 700 gas stations, the mean price for regular gasoline at the pump was $2.888 per gallon and the standard deviation was $0.009 per gallon. A random sample of size 50 is drawn from this population. What is the probability that the mean price per gallon is less than $2.884? The probability that the mean price per gallon is less than $2.884 is.0035 (Round to four decimal places as needed.)Start your trial now! First week only $4.99!*arrow_forward*
