(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let X1, X2, ..., X9 be a random sample from a normal distribution, Xi~N(6,25), and denote by Xbar and S^2 the sample mean and sample variance. Use the standard statistical table for normal distribution.

2. Relevant equations

E[S^2] = δ^2 = 25

S^2 = (ƩXi^2 - nXbar^2)/(n-1)

3. The attempt at a solution

I have to find the probability and I want to move Xbar to one side. To do that, I need to find the value of S. I have no idea how to do this. I don't know how to use the sum. All I know is that n=9. I got a very complicated integral from using E[S^2]. How do I find S? Or what should I do if I can't?
