Suppose that twenty-five Winter students were randomly selected. The mean age for the sample was $30.4$. We are interested in the true mean age for Winter Foothill College students. Let $X=$ the age of a Winter Foothill College student.In words, define the random variable $\overline{X}$.

$\overline{X}$ is the mean.
