Question

Let x represent the dollar amount spent on supermarket impulse buying in a 10-minute (unplanned) shopping interval. Based on a certain article, the mean of the x distribution is about $15 and the estimated standard deviation is about $8.

Consider a random sample of n = 100 customers, each of whom has 10 minutes of unplanned shopping time in a supermarket. From the central limit theorem, what can you say about the probability distribution of x, the average amount spent by these customers due to impulse buying? What are the mean and standard deviation of the x distribution?

A) What is the probability that x is between $13 and $17? (Round your answer to four decimal places.

B)  Let us assume that x has a distribution that is approximately normal. What is the probability that x is between $13 and $17? (Round your answer to four decimal places.
