Normal distributions

Consider two independent populations that are normally distributions. A simple random sample of
\(\displaystyle{n}_{{1}}={41}\)
from the first population showed
\(\displaystyle\overline{{x}}_{{11}}={33}\)
, and a simple random of size
\(\displaystyle{n}_{{2}}={48}\)
from the second population showed
\(\displaystyle\overline{{x}}_{{2}}={32}\)
Suppose
\(\displaystyle{s}_{{1}}={9}{s}_{{1}}={9}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{s}_{{2}}={10}{s}_{{2}}={10}\)
, find a 98% confidence interval for
\(\displaystyle\mu_{{1}}−\mu_{{2}}\mu_{{1}}-\mu_{{2}}\)
. (Round answers to two decimal places.)

Consider the marks of all 1st-year students on a statistics test. If the marks have a normal distribution with a mean of 72 and a standard deviation of 9, then the probability that a random sample of 10 students from this group have a sample mean between 71 and 73 is?

The manager of the store in the preceding exercise calculated the residual for each point in the scatterplot and made a dotplot of the residuals.
The distribution of residuals is roughly Normal with a mean of $0 and standard deviation of $22.92.
The middle 95% of residuals should be between which two values? Use this information to give an interval of plausible values for the weekly sales revenue if 5 linear feet are allocated to the store's brand of men's grooming products.
