The lengths of lumber a machine cuts are normally distributed with a mean of 9595 inches and a standard deviation of 0.70.7 inch. ​(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected board cut by the machine has a length greater than 95.3295.32 ​inches? ​(b) A sample of 4545 boards is randomly selected. What is the probability that their mean length is greater than 95.3295.32 ​inches?

The lengths of lumber a machine cuts are normally distributed with a mean of 95 inches and a standard deviation of 0.7 inch. ​(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected board cut by the machine has a length greater than 95.32 ​inches?

Z value for 95.32, z =(95.32-95)/0.7 = 0.46

P( x >95.32) = P( z > 0.46)

=0.3228

​(b) A sample of 45 boards is randomly selected. What is the probability that their mean length is greater than 95.32 ​inches?

Standard error = sd/sqrt(n) = 0.7/sqrt(45) =0.1044

Z value for 95.32, z =(95.32-95)/0.1044 = 3.07

P( mean x >95.32) = P( z > 3.07)

=0.0011
