How much do you think is reasonable?

S is never defined

I guess, it is the probability of a random sample being between 9 and 10?

That doesn’t make sense. Find out what S means and then come back

just updated. s is now defined

Are you sure It's not supposed to be S^2, the sample variance? Or maybe the Variance of Xk is supposed to be 9^2 not 9? As written, the answer to c is pretty much 0, so I think there might be a typo.

Yep. This is an exact copy from my assignment and my professor said that there are no typos.
