- Question: The ages of a group of 50 women are approximately normally distributed with a mean of 47 years and a standard deviation of 6 years. One woman is randomly selected from the group, and her age is observed.
- Question: Almost all companies utilize some type of year-end performance review for their employees. Human Resource (HR) at a university Health Science Center provides guidelines for supervisors rating their subordinates.
