    ok JJ--- you're searching for the z cost that delivers you a million.0-0.5-0.0228) it particularly is 0.4772. looking that area up on the z table you get a cost of two stdev's and because it particularly is a one tailed attempt the propose might prefer to be under the 199 so 2 = (199-mu)/29 So, fifty 8 = 199-mu and as a effect the propose mu = 141.
