Question

Suppose commute times in a large city are normally distributed and that 61.00% of commuters in this city take more than 21 minutes to commute one-way. If the standard deviation of such commutes is 6.4 minutes, what is the mean commute?

Answer #1

P(X > 21) = 0.61

Or, P((X - )/ > (21 - )/) = 0.61

Or, P(Z > (21 - )/6.4) = 0.61

Or, P(Z < (21 - )/6.4) = 0.39

Or, (21 - )/6.4 = -0.28

Or, = 21 + 6.4 * 0.28

Or, = 22.792

Suppose commute times in a large city are normally distributed
and that 66.60% of commuters in this city take more than 20 minutes
to commute one-way. If the standard deviation of such commutes is
6.4 minutes, what is the mean commute?

Question 6 (1 point)
Suppose that one-way commute times in a particular city are
normally distributed with a mean of 26.75 minutes and a standard
deviation of 2.216 minutes. Would it be unusual for a commute time
to be below 37 minutes?
Question 6 options:
1)
It is impossible for this value to occur
with this distribution of data.
2)
The value is unusual.
3)
The value is not unusual.
4)
We do not have enough information to

Among U.S. cities with a population of more than 250,000
the mean one-way commute
to work is 25 minutes. The longest one-way travel time is
New York City, where the
mean time is 40 minutes. Assume the distribution of travel
times in New York City
follows the normal probability distribution and the
standard deviation is 7.5 minutes.
a. What percent of the New York City commutes are for less
than 30 minutes?
b. What percent are between 30 and 35...

The commute times (amounts of time it takes people to commute
from home to work) for people who live in a large city are
bell-shaped with a mean of 65 minutes and a standard deviation of 9
minutes.
Using the Empirical Rule, what is the approximate percentage of
commute times in this distribution that are greater than 83
minutes?

6. A recent study examined the one-way commute times in the 30
largest cities in the United States. The longest one-way travel
