Step 1

Solution:

a.The distribution of sample means is identified below:

Central limit theorem:

If the sample is selected from the population with finite mean and standard deviation, then the distribution of sample means follows normal distribution as sample size increases with regardless of population distribution.

According to central limit theorem sample means would tend to be normally distributed.

Step 2

b.The mean of the sample means is obtained below:

The mean of the sample mean is equal to the population mean.

The mean of the sample means ...
