Step 1

Denote X as the mean cost of renting an apartment in a city. It is given that X is distributed, with mean μ = $2000 and standard deviation σ = $300.

A random sample of 60 apartments are taken.

As the sample size is large (>30), it can be assumed that the mean cost of renting an apartment in a city follows normal distribution with mean μ = $2000 and standard deviation σ = $300.

Let X bar be the mean cost rent for the sample. It is known that,
