Question

The capacity of an elevator is

1212

people or

19801980

pounds. The capacity will be exceeded if

1212

people have weights with a mean greater than

1980 divided by 12 equals 165 pounds.1980/12=165 pounds.

Suppose the people have weights that are normally distributed with a mean of

168 lb168 lb

and a standard deviation of

31 lb31 lb.

a. Find the probability that if a person is randomly selected, his weight will be greater than

165165

pounds.The probability is approximately

0.53980.5398.

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)b. Find the probability that

1212

randomly selected people will have a mean that is greater than

165165

pounds.The probability is approximately

nothing.

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

Answer #1

µ = 168

sd = 31

n = 12

= P(Z > -0.34)

= 1 - P(Z < -0.34)

= 1 - 0.3669

= 0.6331

5. The capacity of an elevator is 10 people or 1660 pounds. The
capacity will be exceeded if 10 people have weights with a mean
greater than 1660/10=166 pounds. Suppose the people have weights
that are normally distributed with a mean of 176 lb and a standard
deviation of 30 lb.

An elevator has a placard stating that the maximum capacity is
1580 lb - 10 passengers. So, 10 adult male passengers
can have a mean weight of up to 1580 divided by 10 equals 158
pounds. If the elevator is loaded with 10 adult male passengers,
find the probability that it is overloaded because they have a mean
weight greater than 158 lb. (Assume that weights of males are
normally distributed with a mean of 168 lb and a standard...

An elevator has a placard stating that the maximum capacity is
2475 lb —15 passengers. So, 15 adult male passengers can have a
mean weight of up to 2475/15=165 pounds. If the elevator is loaded
with 15 adult male passengers, find the probability that it is
overloaded because they have a mean weight greater than 165 lb.
(Assume that weights of males are normally distributed with a mean
of 167 lb and a standard deviation of 35 lb.) Does this...

An elevator has a placard stating that the maximum capacity
is
1240 lb —88 passengers. So,
88 adult male passengers can have a mean weight of up to

a mean weight of up to 1200 divided by 8 equals 150 pounds. If the
elevator is loaded with 8 adult male passengers, find the
probability that it is overloaded because they have a mean weight
greater than 150 lb. (Assume that weights of males are normally

Elevator ride: Engineers are designing a large
elevator that will accommodate 56 people. The maximum weight the
elevator can hold safely is 11,144
pounds. According to the National Health Statistics Reports, the
weights of adult U.S. men have mean 196 pounds and standard
deviation 71 pounds, and the weights of adult U.S. women have mean
169 pounds and standard deviation 80 pounds. Use the TI-84 Plus
calculator.
