A study conducted in2012 found the length of Atlantic cod caught in nets in Karlskrona to have a meanof 49.9 cm and a standard deviation of 3.74 cm (Ovegard, Berndt &Lunneryd, 2012). The length of fish is normally distributed. A sample of 15 fish is taken.

a.) State the random variable.

b.) Find the mean and standard deviation of the sample mean.

c.) Find the probability that the sample mean length of the Atlantic cod is lessthan
52 cm.

d.) Find the probability that the sample mean length of the Atlantic cod is morethan
74 cm.

e.) If you found sample mean length for Atlantic cod to be more than 74 cm, whatcould you conclude?
