finding number of standard deviations between sample and population mean
Suppose that the mean mileage of all pickup trucks of a particular make is unknown and will be estimated from a random sample of 36 trucks. The sample mean mileage was found to be 6 litres per 100 km. Assume that the standard deviation of the mileages of all trucks is .5 litres per 100 km. There is a 0.95 probability that the mean of the sample will be within z SDs of the unknown mileage. What is z?
I believe I find the z-score associated with 0.95 but I'm not sure if I need to do something with the sample mean or SD.
