Question

The mean gas mileage for a hybrid car is 56 miles per gallon. Suppose that the gasoline mileage is approximately normally distributed with a standard deviation of

3.3 miles per gallon.

(a) What proportion of hybrids gets over 61 miles per gallon?

(b) What proportion of hybrids gets 52 miles per gallon or less?

(c) What proportion of hybrids gets between 59 and 62 miles per gallon?

(d) What is the probability that a randomly selected hybrid gets less than 45 miles per gallon?

Answer #1

Question is answered below.

Assume that gas mileage for cars is normally distributed with a
mean of 23.5 miles per gallon and a standard deviation of 10 miles
per gallon. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting
work, will receive no credit.
(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected car gets
between 15 and 30 miles per gallon? (Round the answer to 4 decimal
places)
(b) Find the 75th percentile of the gas mileage distribution.
(Round the answer to 2 decimal...

A car has a gas mileage listing of 28 miles per gallon. You take
the car out on 56 trips and find the average gas mileage to be 25
with a standard deviation of 6 mpg.
a) At the .01 level is the car getting gas mileage less than
expected? (p = 0)
b) True or false: natural variability is the reason for the
change in gas mileage
Answer:

A new car that is a gas- and electric-powered hybrid has
recently hit the market. The distance travelled on 1 gallon of fuel
is normally distributed with a mean of 60 miles and a standard
deviation of 6 miles. Find the probability of the following
events:
A. The car travels more than 63 miles per gallon.
Probability =
B. The car travels less than 52 miles per gallon.
Probability =
C. The car travels between 52 and 66 miles per...

A certain model of automobile has its gas mileage (in miles per
gallon, or mpg) normally distributed, with a mean of 32 mpg and a
standard deviation of 4 mpg. Find the probability that a car
selected at random has the following gas mileages. (Round your
answers to four decimal places.) (a) less than 26 mpg (b) greater
than 34 mpg (c) between 30 and 34 mpg

A new car that is a gas- and electric-powered hybrid has
recently hit the market. The distance travelled on 1 gallon of fuel
is normally distributed with a mean of 60 miles and a standard
deviation of 7 miles. Find the probability of the following
events:
A. The car travels more than 65 miles per gallon. Probability
=
B. The car travels less than 54 miles per gallon. Probability
=
C. The car travels between 52 and 67 miles per...

A certain car model has a mean gas mileage of 31 miles per
gallon (mpg) with a standard deviation 3 mpg. A pizza delivery
company buys 43 of these cars. What is the probability that the
average mileage of the fleet is greater than 30.7 mph

A certain car model has a mean gas mileage of 31 miles per
gallon (mpg) with astandard deviation 3 mpg. A pizza delivery
company buys 43 of these cars. What is theprobability that the
average mileage of the fleet is greater than 30.7 mpg?

Suppose your car gets 26 miles per gallon of gasoline, and you
are driving at 50 miles per hour. Using unit analyses find the
number of hours it takes to use 1 gallon of gas

A Ford Focus manual transmission gets an average of 28 miles per
gallon (mpg) in city driving with a standard deviation of 1.6 mpg.
Assume that gas mileage is normally distributed.
a) If a Focus is selected at random, what is the probability
that it will get more than 31 mpg?
b) What is the probability that a randomly selected Focus will
get between 20 and 30 mpg?
c) What is the probability that a randomly selected Focus will
get...

A major U.S. automaker has determined that the city mileage for
its new hybrid gas/electric model is normally distributed with a
mean equal to 52 miles per gallon (μ = 52) and a standard deviation
of 3.7 mpg (σ = 3.7).
A. What is the probability a vehicle would get less than
50 miles per gallon, i.e., P(x < 50)?
