The highway fuel economy of a 2016 Lexus RX 350 FWD 6-cylinder 3.5-L automatic 5-speed using premium fuel is a normally distributed random variable with a mean of *μ = 25.25 *mpg and a standard deviation of *σ = 2.00* mpg.

**(a)** What is the standard error of X⎯⎯⎯X¯ , the mean from a random sample of 9 fill-ups by one driver? **(Round your answer to 4 decimal places.)**

Standard error of X⎯⎯⎯X¯ _________

**(b)** Within what interval would you expect the sample mean to fall, with 95 percent probability? **(Round your answers to 4 decimal places.)**

The interval is from ________ to _________

Step 1

**Note: X- (X-bar) is considered as X-bar.**

**a.Finding the standard error of X-bar, the mean from a random sample of 9 fill-ups by one driver:**

The standard error of X-bar is σ/sqrt(n).

The standard deviation, σ = 2.00 and n = 9.

Thus, the standard error of X-bar, the mean from a random sample of 9 fill-ups by one driver is, σ/sqrt(n) = 2/sqrt(9) = **0.6667.**

Step 2

**b. finding the interval within which the sample mean will fall with 95% probability:**

A 95% confidence interval for the true mean is as follows:

Step 3

It is given that, X-bar = 25.25 and n = 9.

The degrees of freedom is, n-1 = 9-1 =8.

For a 95% confidence level, the value of tα/2 calculated usi...
