You may need to use the appropriate appendix table to answer this question.

The time needed to complete a final examination in a particular college course is normally distributed with a mean of 80 minutes and a standard deviation of 10 minutes. Answer the following questions.

(a)What is the probability of completing the exam in one hour or less? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

(b)What is the probability that a student will complete the exam in more than 60 minutes but less than 65 minutes? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

(c)Assume that the class has 60 students and that the examination period is 90 minutes in length. How many students do you expect will be unable to complete the exam in the allotted time? (Round your answer up to the nearest integer.)

___ students

Given,

= 80 , = 10

We convert this to standard normal as

P( X < x) = P( Z < x - / )

a)

P( X <= 60) = P( Z < 60 - 80 / 10)

= P( Z < -2)

= 0.0228

b)

P( 60 < X < 65) = P( X < 65) - P( X < 60)

= P( Z < 65 - 80 / 10) - P( Z < 60 - 80 / 10)

= P( Z < -1.5) - P( Z < -2)

= 0.0669 - 0.0228

= 0.0441

c)

P( X > 90) = P( Z > 90 - 80 / 10)

= P( Z > 1)

= 0.1587

Of the 60 students, number of students unable to complete exam in allotted time

= 60 * 0.1587

= 9.522

= 10 students
