Question

A trucking company determined that the distance traveled per truck per year is normally? distributed, with a mean of 50 thousand miles and a standard deviation of 10 thousand miles. Complete parts? (a) through? (c) below. A. What proportion of trucks can be expected to travel between 37 and 50 thousand miles in a? year? The proportion of trucks that can be expected to travel between 37 and 50 thousand miles in a year is (Round to four decimal places as? needed.) b. What percentage of trucks can be expected to travel either less than 40 or more than 70 thousand miles in a? year? The percentage of trucks that can be expected to travel either less than 40 or more than 70 thousand miles in a year is _ %. ?(Round to two decimal places as? needed.) c. How many miles will be traveled by at least 65?% of the? trucks? The amount of miles that will be traveled by at least 65?% of the trucks is _ miles. ?(Round to the nearest mile as? needed.)

Answer #1

a)

for normal distribution z score =(X-μ)/σx | |

here mean= μ= | 50 |

std deviation =σ= | 10.0000 |

probability = | P(37<X<50) | = | P(-1.3<Z<0)= | 0.5-0.0968= | 0.4032 |

b)

probability = | 1-P(40<X<70) | = | 1-P(-1<Z<2)= | 1-(0.9772-0.1587)= | 1-0.8185=0.1815~ 18.15% |

c)

for 35th percentile critical value of z= | -0.39 | ||

therefore corresponding value=mean+z*std deviation= | 46.10~ 46 |

hence 46 miles will be traveled by at least 65 % of the truck

The maintenance manager at a trucking company wants to build a
regression model to forecast the time (in years) until the first
engine overhaul based on four explanatory variables: (1) annual
miles driven (in 1,000s of miles), (2) average load weight (in
tons), (3) average driving speed (in mph), and (4) oil change
interval (in 1,000s of miles). Based on driver logs and onboard
computers, data have been obtained for a sample of 25 trucks. A
portion of the data...

approximately normally distributed with mean mu equals 263 days and
standard deviation sigma equals 15 days. Complete parts (a)
through (f) below. (a) What is the probability that a randomly
selected pregnancy lasts less than 257 days? The probability that
a randomly selected pregnancy lasts less than 257 days is
approximately nothing. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)
Interpret this probability. Select the correct choice below and

A. What
proportion of men can be expected to have heights less
than: 66, 70, 72, 75 inches?
B. What
proportion of men can be expected to have heights greater
than: 64, 66, 73, 78 inches?
C. What
proportion...
