Question

A trucking company determined that the distance traveled per truck per year is normally distributed, with a mean of 70 thousand miles and a standard deviation of 11 thousand miles.

a. What proportion of trucks can be expected to travel between 55 and 70 thousand miles in a year?

The proportion of trucks that can be expected to travel between
55 and 70 thousand miles in a year is **0.4131**

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

b. What percentage of trucks can be expected to travel either less than 50 or more than 80 thousand miles in a year?

The percentage of trucks that can be expected to travel either
less than 50 or more than 80 thousand miles in a year is
**21.58%**

(Round to two decimal places as needed.)

c. How many miles will be traveled by at least 75% of the trucks?

The number of miles that will be traveled by at least 75% of the trucks is _______miles.

(Round to the nearest mile as needed.)

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

mean = = 70

standard deviation = = 11

a ) P (55 < x < 70 )

P ( 55 - 70 / 11) < ( x - / ) < (70 - 70 / 11)

P ( - 15 / 11 < z < 0 / 11 )

P (-1.36 < z < 0 )

P ( z < 0 ) - P ( z < -1.36 )

Using z table

= 0.5000 - 0.0869

= 0.4131

Probability = 0.4131

b ) P( x < 50 )

P ( x - / ) < ( 50 - 70 / 11)

P ( z < -20 / 11 )

P ( z < -1.82 )

= 0.0344

P (x > 80 )

= 1 - P (x < 80 )

= 1 - P ( x - / ) < ( 80 - 70 / 11)

= 1 - P ( z < 10 / 11 )

= 1 - P ( z < 0.91 )

Probability = 0.0344 +0.1814

=02158 = 21.58%

b ) P( Z > z) = 75%

P(Z > z) = 0.75

1 - P( Z < z) = 0.75

P(Z < z) = 1 - 0.75

P(Z < z) = 0.25

z = - 0.67

Using z-score formula,

x = z * +

x = - 0.67 * 11 + 70

x = 63

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...

Suppose an electric-vehicle manufacturing company estimates that
a driver who commutes 50 miles per day in a particular vehicle will
require a nightly charge time of around 1 hour and 30 minutes (90
minutes) to recharge the vehicle's battery. Assume that the actual
recharging time required is uniformly distributed between 70 and
110 minutes.
(a) Give a mathematical expression for the probability density
function of battery recharging time for this scenario.
f(x) = , 70 ≤ x ≤ 110
f(x)=...

Five years ago, Kennedy Trucking Company was considering the
purchase of 60 new diesel trucks that were 15% more fuel-efficient
than the ones the firm was using. Mr. Hoffman, the president, had
found that the company uses an average of 10million gallons of
diesel fuel per year at a price of $1.25 per gallon. If he can cut
fuel consumption by 15%, he will save $1,875,000 per year
(1,500,000 gallons times $1.25). Mr. Hoffman assumed that the price
of diesel...
