Dementia is the loss of the intellectual and social abilities severe enough to interfere with judgment, behavior, and daily functioning. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. In the article "Living with Early Onset Dementia: Exploring the Experience and Developing Evidence-Based Guidelines for Practice" (Alzheimer's Care Quarterly, Vol. 5, Issue 2, pp. 111-122), P. Harris and J. Keady explored the experience and struggles of people diagnosed with dementia and their families. If the mean age at diagnosis of all people with early-onset dementia is 55 years, find the probability that a random sample of 21 such people will have a mean age at diagnosis less than 52.5 years. Assume that the population standard deviation is 6.8 years. State any assumptions that you are making in solving this problem.
