discounted items. The box contains 5 sweatshirts, 6 pairs of shorts, 9 tee shirts, 2 turtleneck
sweaters, and 8 tank tops. Answer the following questions (a-d) with this information. Report
all your answers in decimal format and use four (4) decimal places. (Start each question
with the original 30 total clothing items).
a. What is the probability that you will randomly select a turtleneck sweater out of the box?
(1 point)
b. What is the probability that you will randomly select a tee shirt or a pair of shorts out of
the box?

population standard deviation of 1.3. Your stats professor says that she takes 5 naps per
month. Use an alpha level of 0.05 to determine whether your professor takes significantly
more naps per month than the average adult.

5. A researcher wants to know if there is a difference in amount of orange juice drank between
Floridians and Ohioans. He gathers a sample of Floridians and a sample of Ohioans and
experiment is provided below. Use this data and
