7. The past records of a supermarket show that its customers spend on average \$65 per visit at
this store. Recently the management of the store initiated a promotional campaign according
to which each customer receives points based on the total money spent at the store and these
points can be used to buy products at the store. The management expects that as a result of
this campaign, the customers would be encouraged to spend more money at the store. To
check whether this is true, the manager of the store took a random sample of 12 customers
who visited the store. The following data give the amount (in dollars) spent by those
customers.
88, 69, 141, 28, 106, 45, 32, 51, 78, 54, 110, 83
Assume that the amount spent by all customers at this supermarket has a normal distribution
with mean and variance ". Answer the following questions.
(a) Compute the sample mean and the sample standard deviation of the above sample.
(b) What are the unbiased estimators of and "?
(c) What are the estimates of and " based on this sample?
(d) Construct a 95% confidence interval for . Interpret the interval in the context of the
study.
