Question

A: Given that the length an athlete throws a hammer is a normal random variable with mean 50 feet and standard deviation 5 feet, what is the probability he throws it between 50 feet and 60 feet?

B: The population of lengths of aluminum-coated steel sheets is normally distributed with a mean of 30 inches and a standard deviation of 0.5 inches. What is the probability that a sheet selected at random will be less than 29 inches long?

Answer #1

A) Given that, mean = 50 feet and

standard deviation = 5 feet

We want to find, P(50 < X < 60)

Therefore, the probability he throws it between 50 feet and 60
feet is **0.4772**

B) Given that, mean = 30 inches and

standard deviation = 0.5 inches

We want to find, P(X < 29

Therefore, the probability that a sheet selected at random will
be less than 29 inches long is **0.0228**

Given the length an athlete throws a hammer is a normal random
variable with mean 60 feet and variance 9, what is the probability
he throws it between 55 feet and 65 feet?

The population of lengths of aluminum-coated steel sheets is
normally distributed with a mean of 30.0 inches and a standard
deviation of 0.9 inches. A sample of 36 metal sheets is randomly
selected from a batch. What is the probability that the average
length of a sheet is between 29.82 and 30.27 inches long?

Suppose that the population of lengths of aluminum-coated steel
sheets is approximately normally distributed with a mean of 30.5

1) A company produces steel rods. The lengths of the steel rods
are normally distributed with a mean of 183.4-cm and a standard
deviation of 1.3-cm.
Find the probability that the length of a randomly selected steel
rod is between 179.9-cm and 180.3-cm.
P(179.9<x<180.3)=P(179.9<x<180.3)=

The lengths of lumber a machine cuts are normally distributed
with a mean of 105 inches and a standard deviation of 0.5 inch.
(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected board cut by
the machine has a length greater than 105.14 inches? (b) A sample
of 42 boards is randomly selected. What is the probability that
their mean length is greater than 105.14 inches?

The lengths of steel rods produced by a shearing process are
normally distributed. A random sample of 10 rods is selected; the
sample mean length is 119.05 inches; and the sample standard
deviation is 0.10 inch. The 90% confidence interval for the
population mean rod length is __________.
Select one:
A. 118.99 to 119.11
B. 118.57 to 119.23
C. 119.00 to 119.30
D. 118.89 to 119.51

A manufacturer knows that their items have a normally
distributed length, with a mean of 11.5 inches, and a standard
deviation of 0.5 inches. If 19 items are chosen at random, what is
the probability that their mean length is less than 11.2
inches?

1) A PGA (Professional Golf Association) tournament organizer is
attempting to determine whether hole (pin) placement has a
significant impact on the average number of strokes for the
13th hole on a given golf course. Historically, the pin
has been placed in the front right corner of the green, and the
historical mean number of strokes for the hole has been 4.25, with
a standard deviation of 1.6 strokes. On a particular day during the
most recent golf tournament, the...
