Question 1:
For the population of farm workers in New Zealand, suppose that weekly income has a distribution that is skewed to the right with a mean of µ = $500 (N.Z.) and a standard deviation of s = $160. A researcher, unaware of these values, plans to randomly sample 100 farm workers and use the sample mean annual income x ¯ to estimate µ.
Show that the standard deviation of x ¯ equals 16.0

Explain why it is almost certain that the sample mean will fall within $48 of $500.
