Let x be a random variable that represents white blood cell count per cubic milliliter of whole blood. Assume that x has a distribution that is approximately normal, with mean μ = 6000 and estimated standard deviation σ = 2150. A test result of x < 3500 is an indication of leukopenia. This indicates bone marrow depression that may be the result of a viral infection.

(a) What is the probability that, on a single test, x is less than 3500? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

(b) Suppose a doctor uses the average x for two tests taken about a week apart. What can we say about the probability distribution of x?

The probability distribution of x is not normal.The probability distribution of x is approximately normal with μx = 6000 and σx = 2150.    The probability distribution of x is approximately normal with μx = 6000 and σx = 1520.28.The probability distribution of x is approximately normal with μx = 6000 and σx = 1075.00.

What is the probability of x < 3500? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

(c) Repeat part (b) for n = 3 tests taken a week apart. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)  #### Earn Coins
