Assume Y=X beta_0+epsilon where ϵ is zero mean and X is fixed. I know that under certain conditions on the design matrix X in OLS, the sample mean of the residuals e is 0. Can we say the same for the true population mean of residuals as well?

Y ^ = X β ^ and
E [ e ] = E ( Y Y ^ ) = E [ X β 0 X β ^ ] = X ( β 0 E ( β ^ ) ) = 0
since β ^ is an unbiased estimator of β 0 .
Am I making a mistake?

If we are treating X as fixed, which I take to mean non-random, then by assumption
E [ ϵ ] = 0
You are sort of going in a circle because you say E [ Y ] = X β 0 , but this is because of our prior assumption. It is a result not an assumption. We have
Y = X β 0 + ϵ E [ Y ] = E [ X β 0 + ϵ ] E [ Y ] = E [ X β 0 ] + E [ ϵ ] E [ Y ] = X β 0 + 0 E [ Y ] = X β 0
where the fourth line is a result of our assumption and X being non-random (as well as β 0 being a constant).

How do I calculate the quartiles for this problem?
I have the following list of numbers, and I'm trying to calculate the quartiles:
2, 4, 4, 5, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 9
I'm running into a bit of confusion because the median turns out to be 7. Now I don't know how to demarcate the lower group from the upper group since there are a whole bunch of 7's. Consequently, I don't know how to calculate Q 1 and Q 3

Suppose that, based on historical data, we believe that the annual percentage salary increases for the chief executive officers of all midsize corporations are normally distributed with a mean of 12.2% and a standard deviation of 3.6%. A random sample of nine observations is obtained from this population, and the sample mean is computed. What is the probability that the sample mean will be greater than 14.4%?

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
