All,

Thanks for taking the time to read this thread. If I am given information about the population (population mean and standard deviation), can I determine the approximate mean for a randomly drawn sample (if the only information I am given about the sample is the sample size)? For example, if I am told the population mean is 67 and the population standard deviation is 16, can I determine the mean for a randomly drawn sample with 64 draws (if the numerical value for each of the draws is not listed)? Thanks. Bob
