Question

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel economy estimates for automobile models tested recently predicted a mean of 24.8 mpg and a standard deviation of 6.2 mpg for highway driving. Assume that a Normal model can be applied.

a) Draw the model for auto fuel economy. Clearly label it, showing what the 68-95-97 Rule predicts. Use StatCrunch, Excel, or Minitab.

b) In what interval would you expect the central 68% of autos to be found?

c) About what percent of autos should get more than 31 mpg?

d) About what percent of autos should get between 31 and 37.2 mpg?

e) Describe the gas mileage of the worst 2.5% of all cars

Answer #1

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel economy estimates
for automobile models tested recently predicted a mean of 24.8
miles per gallon, with a standard deviation of 6.2 miles per
gallon. Assume that a Normal model applies. Find the probability
that a randomly selected automobile will average:
1. Less than 20 miles per gallon.
2. More than 30 miles per gallon.
3. Between 25 and 32 miles per gallon

1 b) More than 14 Miles per gallon
1c ) Between 25 and 30 miles per gallon

The Environmental Protection Agency
measures a mean gas mileage for recently tested cars as 24.8 mpg
with a standard
deviation of 6.2 mpg. The dataset
on Fuel economy in StatCrunch gives an average of
24.2 mpg with a standard deviation of 6.5 mpg. Joe’s car is
estimated at 30 mpg.
(a) Calculate the z-scores to find the relative tab at both
sources (the Exercise and
the Dataset).
(b) Relative to the other cars,

In its Fuel Economy Guide for 2014 model vehicles, the
Environmental Protection Agency gives data on 1160 vehicles. There
are a number of high outliers, mainly hybrid gas-electric vehicles.
If we ignore the vehicles identified as outliers, however, the
combined city and highway gas mileage of the other 1134 vehicles is
approximately Normal with mean 22.8 miles per gallon (mpg) and
standard deviation 5.3 mpg.
The quintiles of any distribution are the values with cumulative
proportions 0.20, 0.40, 0.60, and...

Assume that fuel economy follows a normal distribution with mean
of 24 mpg (miles per gallon) and a standard deviation of 6 mpg.
(a) In what interval would you expect the central 68% of autos
to be found?
(b) What percent of autos should get more than 30 mpg?
(c) What gas mileage corresponds to the worst 2.5% of all
cars?

Fuel Efficiency of Manual and Automatic
Cars
Each year the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) releases
fuel economy data on cars manufactured in that year. Below are
summary statistics on fuel efficiency (in miles/gallon) from random
samples of cars with manual and automatic transmissions
manufactured in 2012. Do these data provide strong evidence of a
difference between the average fuel efficiency of cars with manual
and automatic transmissions in terms of their average city mileage?
Assume that conditions for inference...

In its Fuel Economy Guide for 2016 model vehicles, the
Environmental Protection Agency gives data on 1170 vehicles. There
are a number of high outliers, mainly hybrid gas-electric vehicles.
If we ignore the vehicles identified as outliers, however, the
combined city and highway gas mileage of the other 1146 vehicles is
approximately Normal with mean 23.0 miles per gallon and standard
deviation 4.9 mpg.
The quintiles of any distribution are the values with cumulative
proportions 0.20, 0.40, 0.60, and 0.80....
