Question
Random variables A population of values has a normal distribution with $$\displaystyle\mu={133.5}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={5.2}$$. You intend to draw a random sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={230}$$.
Find the probability that a sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={230}$$ is randomly selected with a mean between 133.6 and 134.1.

Given Information:
$$\displaystyle\mu={133.5}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={5.2}$$
$$\displaystyle{n}={230}$$
To find the probability that a sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={230}$$ is randomly selected with a mean between 133.6 and 134.1:
Based on the concept of Central limit theorem, if a random sample of size 'n' is drawn from a population with mean $$\displaystyle\mu$$ and standard deviation $$\displaystyle\sigma$$, the sampling distribution of sample mean $$\displaystyle\overline{{{x}}}$$ is approximately normally distributed with mean $$\displaystyle\mu_{{\overline{{{x}}}}}=\mu$$ and standard deviation $$\displaystyle\sigma_{{\overline{{{x}}}}}={\frac{{\sigma}}{{\sqrt{{{n}}}}}}$$.
Mean of sample mean = $$\displaystyle\mu_{{\overline{{{x}}}}}=\mu={133.5}$$
Standard deviation $$\displaystyle\sigma_{{\overline{{{x}}}}}={\frac{{\sigma}}{{\sqrt{{{n}}}}}}={\frac{{{5.2}}}{{\sqrt{{{230}}}}}}={0.343}$$
Required probability can be obtained as follows:
$$\displaystyle{P}{\left({133.6}{<}\overline{{{x}}}{<}{134.1}\right)}={P}{\left(\overline{{{x}}}{<}{134.1}\right)}-{P}{\left(\overline{{{x}}}{<}{133.6}\right)}$$</span>
$$\displaystyle={P}{\left({\frac{{\overline{{{x}}}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}{<}{\frac{{{134.1}-{133.5}}}{{{0.343}}}}\right)}-{P}{\left({\frac{{\overline{{{x}}}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}{<}{\frac{{{133.6}-{133.5}}}{{{0.343}}}}\right)}$$</span>
$$\displaystyle={P}{\left({Z}{<}{1.75}\right)}-{P}{\left({Z}{<}{0.29}\right)}$$</span>
$$\displaystyle={0.95994}−{0.61409}={0.34585}{\left[{u}{\sin{{g}}}{s}{\tan{{d}}}{a}{r}{d}{\left\|{a}\right\|}{l}{t}{a}{b}\le\right]}$$
Therefore, probability that a sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={230}$$ is randomly selected with a mean between 133.6 and 134.1 is 0.3459
