Question

For a certain type of computers, the length of time between charges of the battery is normally distributed with a mean of 42 hours and a standard deviation of 18 hours. a. If 20 computers are randomly selected, what is the probability that the mean charging time of their batteries is more than 45 hours? b. If 38 computers are randomly selected, what is the probability that the mean charging time of their batteries is between 37 and 40 hours? c. If 16 computers are randomly selected, what is the probability that the mean charging time of their batteries is less than 50 hours? Will this be unusual?

Answer #1

Solution:- Given that mean = 42, sd = 18

a. for n = 20,

P(X > 45) = P((X-mean)/(sd/sqrt(n)) >
(45-42)/((18/sqrt(20)))

= P(Z > 0.7454)

= 1 − P(Z < 0.7454)

= 1 − 0.7734

= 0.2266

b. for n = 38

P(37 < X < 40) = P((37-42)/(18/sqrt(38)) < Z <
(40-42)/(18/sqrt(38)))

= P(-1.7123 < Z < -0.6849)

= P(Z < −0.6849) − P( Z < −1.7123)

= 0.2483 - 0.0436

= 0.2047

c. for n = 16

P(X < 50) = P(Z < (50-42)/(18/sqrt(16)))

= P(Z < 1.7778)

= 0.9625

For a certain type of computers, the length of time
between charges of the battery is normally distributed with a mean
of 50 hours and a standard deviation of 15 hours. John owns one of
these computers and want to know the probability that the length of
time will be between 50 and 70 hours.

The lifetime of a certain type of battery is normally
distributed with a mean of 1000 hours and a standard deviation of
100 hours. Find the probability that a randomly selected battery
will last between 950 and 1050 hours

A battery manufacturer advertises that the mean reserve capacity
of a certain battery is 1500 hours. You suspect that the batteries’
reserve time is less than the advertised value. To test this claim,
you randomly select a sample of 20 batteries and find the mean
reserve capacity to be 1320 hours. Assume that the population
standard deviation is 320 hours. Do you have enough evidence to
support the manufacturer’s claim? What assumption is necessary for
this test to be valid?...

Computers are shut down for certain periods of time for routine
maintenance, installation of new hardware, and so on. The downtimes
for a particular computer are normally distributed with a mean, ,
of 1.5 hours and a standard deviation, , of 0.4 hours.
Find the probability a downtime will exceed 0.5 hours.

The lifetime of a certain type of battery is known to be
normally distributed with a population standard deviation of 20
hours. A sample of 50 batteries had a mean lifetime of 120.1
hours.
a. What is the point estimate?
b. Calculate the sampling error.
c. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean.
Explain the answer in a sentence.

The lifetime of a certain kind of battery is exponentially
distributed, with an average lifetime of 25 hours. 12. Draw a graph
to represent the probability that the average lifetime of 16
batteries is between 20 and 25 hours. Shade an appropriate region.
(See Question 8) Question #8 says: Find the probability that the
average lifetime of 16 batteries is between 20 and 25 hours.
