Question

A boat capsized and sank in a lake. Based on an assumption of a mean weight of

143

lb, the boat was rated to carry

70

passengers (so the load limit was

10,010

lb). After the boat sank, the assumed mean weight for similar boats was changed from

143

lb to

174

lb. Complete parts a and b below.

a. Assume that a similar boat is loaded with

70

passengers, and assume that the weights of people are normally distributed with a mean of

180.2

lb and a standard deviation of

35.2

lb. Find the probability that the boat is overloaded because the

70

passengers have a mean weight greater than

143

lb.The probability is

Answer #1

**=NORM.S.DIST(-8.84, TRUE)**" to
find the probability.

1. The weights of a certain brand of candies are normally
distributed with a mean weight of 0.8542 g and a standard deviation
of 0.0521 g. A sample of these candies came from a package
containing 454 candies, and the package label stated that the net
weight is 387.3 g. (If every package has 454 candies, the mean
weight of the candies must exceed 387.3 Over 454= 0.8531
g for the net contents to weigh at least 387.3 g.) a. If...

An elevator has a placard stating that the maximum capacity is
1392 lblong dash8 passengers. So, 8 adult male passengers can have
a mean weight of up to 1392 divided by 8 equals 174 pounds. If the
elevator is loaded with 8 adult male passengers, find the
probability that it is overloaded because they have a mean weight
greater than 174 lb. (Assume that weights of males are normally
distributed with a mean of 178 lb and a standard deviation...

An elevator has a placard stating that the maximum capacity is
1376 —8 passengers.
So, 8 adult male passengers can have a mean weight of up to
1376/8=172 lb.
If the elevator is loaded with 8 adult male passengers, find
the probability that it is overloaded because they have a mean
weight greater than 172 lbs.
(Assume that weights of males are normally distributed with a
mean of 174 lb and a standard deviation of 28 lb.)
Does this elevator...

Part One
Before every flight, the pilot must verify that the total
weight of the load is less than the maximum allowable load for the
aircraft. The aircraft can carry 42 passengers, and a flight has
fuel and baggage that allows for a total passenger load of 6 comma
7626,762 lb. The pilot sees that the plane is full and all
passengers are men. The aircraft will be overloaded if the mean
weight of the passengers is greater than StartFraction...
