Question

The
lifetime of light bulbs produced by a company are normally
distributed with mean 1500 hours and standard deviation of 125
hours.

a). What is the probability that a bulb will still be burning
after 1250 hours?

b). What is the number of hours that is survived by 78.81% of
the light bulbs?

Answer #1

a) Probability that a bulb will still be burning after 1250 hours

P( X > 1250) = P( Z > x - μ/ σ )

= P( Z > 1250 - 1500 / 125)

= P (Z > -2)

P( Z < 2) = **0.9772 ( using standard normal
table)**

b)

We have to calculate x such that

P( X > x) = 0.7881

That is

P( X < x) = 1 - 0.7881

P( Z < x - / ) = 0.2119

From Z table.,z-score for the probability of 0.2119 is -0.80

x - / = -0.80

x - 1500 / 125 = -0.80

x = 1400 hours

number of hours that is survived by 78.81% of the light bulbs is 1400 hours

The lifetime of light bulbs produced by a company are normally
distributed with mean 1500 hours and standard deviation 125
hours.
(c) If three new bulbs are installed at the same time, what is
the probability that exactly two will be burning after 1400
hours?
(d) If three new bulbs are installed at the same time, what is
the probability that at least two will be burning after 1400
hours?

It is known that the lifetime of a certain type of light bulb is
normally distributed with
a mean lifetime of 1,060 hours and a standard deviation of 125
hours. What is the
probability that a randomly selected light bulb will last
between 1,000 and 1,100 hours?

The lifetime of a light bulb in a certain application is
normally distributed with mean = 1000 hours and a
standard deviation = 100 hours.
A) What is the probability that a lightbulb will last more than
1100 hours?
B) Find the 10th percentile of the
lifetimes
C) What is the probability that the lifetime of a light
bulb is between 900 and 1100 hours?

Each year, a large warehouse uses thousands of fluorescent light
bulbs that are burning 24 hours per day until they burn out and are
replaced. The lifetime of the bulbs, X, is a normally distributed
random variable with mean 620 hours and standard deviation 20
hours.
(a) If a light bulb is randomly selected, how likely its
lifetime is less than 582 hours?
(b) The warehouse manager orders a shipment of 500 light bulbs
each month. How

If light bulbs have lives that are normally distributed with a
mean of 2500 hours and a standard deviation of 500 hours, use the
68-95-99.7 rule to approximate the percentage of light bulbs having
a life less than 1500

Suppose that the lifetimes of light bulbs are approximately
normally distributed, with a mean of 57 hours and a standard
deviation of 3.5 hours. With this information, answer the
following questions.
(a) What proportion of light bulbs will last more than 61
hours?
(b) What proportion of light bulbs will last 51 hours or
less?
(c) What proportion of light bulbs will last between 58 and 61
hours?
(d) What is the probability that a randomly selected light bulb
lasts...
