Question

Terri Vogel, an amateur motorcycle racer, averages 129.73
seconds per 2.5 mile lap (in a 7 lap race) with a standard
deviation of 2.25 seconds . The distribution of her race times is
normally distributed. We are interested in one of her randomly
selected laps. (Source: log book of Terri Vogel) Let X be the
number of seconds for a randomly selected lap. Round all answers to
4 decimal places where possible.

a. What is the distribution of X? X ~ N(___,___)

b. Find the proportion of her laps that are completed between
129.38 and 131.04 seconds. ____

c. The fastest 4% of laps are under ____ seconds.

d. The middle 60% of her laps are from ____ seconds to ____
seconds.

Answer #1

a)X ~ N(129.73 , 2.25)

b)

for normal distribution z score =(X-μ)/σx | |

here mean= μ= | 129.73 |

std deviation =σ= | 2.2500 |

probability = | P(129.38<X<131.04) | = | P(-0.16<Z<0.58)= | 0.7190-0.4364= | 0.2826 |

c)

for 4th percentile critical value of z= | -1.75 | ||

therefore corresponding value=mean+z*std deviation= | 125.79 seconds |

d)

The middle 60% of her laps are from _127.84_ seconds to _131.62_ seconds
