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?

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

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?
