(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected student will spend more than $750 on a book in a year?
(b) What is the probability that in a random sample of 35 students, the average amount of money of money they spend on books will be more than $750 on a book in a year?

13. A researcher would like to conduct a controlled experiment to test whether or not a new drug will help relieve arthritic pain. To test this, the researcher has 100 participants that are split into two groups. One group will receive the new drug while the other will receive a placebo. The participants do not know whether they are receiving the drug or the placebo, however the researcher, whom will examine them, does. Participants are asked to come in to the research center every week to ask some questions, including some about their pain levels. Circle all the aspects of the study below that make it a good study.
(a) Two groups
(b) Study was double blind
(c) Study was blind
(d) One group received a placebo
(e) Participants were split into two groups but not necessarily randomly
