Question

Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) warn the driver when the tire pressure of the vehicle is 24% below the target pressure. Suppose the target tire pressure of a certain car is 29 psi (pounds per square inch.)

**(a)** At what psi will the TPMS trigger a warning
for this car? **(Round your answer to 2 decimal
place.)**

When the tire pressure is below 22.04 psi

**(b)** Suppose tire pressure is a normally
distributed random variable with a standard deviation equal to 3
psi. If the car’s average tire pressure is on target, what is the
probability that the TPMS will trigger a warning? **(Round
your answer to 4 decimal places.)**

Probability .0102

**(c)** The manufacturer’s recommended correct
inflation range is 27 psi to 31 psi. Assume the tires’ average psi
is on target. If a tire on the car is inspected at random, what is
the probability that the tire’s inflation is within the recommended
range? **(Round your intermediate calculations and final
answer to 4 decimal places.)**

Probability ________

.6972 is incorrect.

just having a hard time with C.

Answer #1

Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) warn the driver when the
tire pressure of the vehicle is 27% below the target pressure.
Suppose the target tire pressure of a certain car is 30 psi (pounds
per square inch.)
(a) At what psi will the TPMS trigger a warning
for this car? (Round your answer to 2 decimal
place.)
When the tire pressure
is (Click

select) above below psi.
(b) Suppose tire pressure is a normally
distributed random variable with a standard deviation equal to...

An earlier exercise posed the following research question: "Many
cars have a recommended tire pressure of 32 psi (pounds per square
inch). At a roadside vehicle safety checkpoint, officials plan to
randomly select 60 cars for which this is the recommended tire
pressure and measure the actual tire pressure in the front left
tire. They want to know whether drivers on average have too little
pressure in their tires." Suppose that the experiment is conducted,
and the mean and standard...

Military radar and missile detection systems are designed to
warn a country of enemy attacks. A reliability question deals with
the ability of the detection system to identify an attack and issue
the warning. Assume that a particular detection system has a 0.91
probability of detecting a missile attack. Answer the following
questions using the binomial probability distribution:
What is the probability that one detection system will detect
an attack? If required, round your answer to two...

A tire manufacturer produces tires that have a mean life of at
least 20000 miles when the production process is working properly.
The operations manager stops the production process if there is
evidence that the mean tire life is below 20000 miles.
To monitor the production process, the operations manager takes
a random sample of 15 tires each week and subjects them to
destructive testing. They calculate the mean life of the tires in
the sample, and if it is...

The recommended air pressure in a basketball is
between7and9pounds per square inch (psi). When dropped from a
height of6feet, a properly inflated basketball should bounce upward
between52and56inches
(http://www.bestsoccerbuys.com/balls-basketball.html). The
basketball coach at a local high school purchased10new basketballs
for the upcoming season, inflated the balls to pressures
between7and9psi, and performed the bounce test mentioned
above. The data obtained are given in the following table.

A tire manufacturer produces tires that have a mean life of at
least 25000 miles when the production process is working properly.
The operations manager stops the production process if there is
evidence that the mean tire life is below 25000 miles.
The testable hypotheses in this situation are
?0:?=25000H0:μ=25000 vs ??:?<25000HA:μ<25000.
To monitor the production process, the operations manager takes
a random sample of 35 tires each week and subjects them to
destructive testing. They calculate the mean life...

A tire manufacturer produces tires that have a mean life of at
least 35000 miles when the production process is working properly.

1. Identify the consequences of making a Type I error.
A. The manager stops production when it is
necessary.
B. The manager does not stop production when it...

In the book Advanced Managerial Accounting, Robert P.
Magee discusses monitoring cost variances. A cost variance
is the difference between a budgeted cost and an actual cost. Magee
describes the following situation:
Michael Bitner has responsibility for control of two
manufacturing processes. Every week he receives a cost variance
report for each of the two processes, broken down by labor costs,
materials costs, and so on. One of the two processes, which we'll
call process A , involves a stable,...

A researcher studying stress is interested in the blood pressure
measurements of chief executive officers (CEOs) of major
corporations. He believes that the mean systolic blood
pressure,
μ
, of CEOs of major corporations is more than
136
mm Hg, which is the value reported in a possibly outdated
journal article. He plans to perform a statistical test and
measures the systolic blood pressures of a random sample of
75
CEOs of major corporations.
Suppose that the population of systolic...
