In problem 5–2, suppose the auditor wants to estimate the proportion of all the firm’s accounts receivable with amounts over $100. Give a point estimate of this parameter.

problem 5–2

An auditor selected a random sample of 12 accounts from all accounts receivable of a given firm. The amounts of the accounts, in dollars, are as follows: 87.50, 123.10, 45.30, 52.22, 213.00, 155.00, 39.00, 76.05, 49.80, 99.99, 132.00, 102.11. Compute an estimate of the mean amount of all accounts receivable. Give an estimate of the variance of all the amounts.
