4. Life tests performed on a sample of 13 batteries of a new model indicated: (1) an average life of75 months, and (2) a standard deviation of 5 months.

5. A large national company is considering negotiating cellular phone rates for its employees Human Resource department would like to estimate the proportion of its employee population who own an Apple iPhone.
