Question

A ski gondola carries skiers to the top of a mountain. Assume
that weights of skiers are normally distributed with a
**mean** of **201 lb** and a
**standard deviation of 42 lb.** The gondola has a
**stated capacity of 25 passengers,** and the gondola
is rated for a **load limit of 3750 lb.** Complete
parts *(a) through (d) below.*

*a. Given that the gondola is rated for a load limit of*
3750 lb, what is the maximum mean weight of the passengers if the
gondola is filled to the stated capacity of 25 passengers?

The maximum mean weight is ____ lb (Type an integer or a decimal. Do not round.)

*b. If the gondola is filled with 25 randomly selected
skiers, what is the probability that their mean weight exceeds the
value from part (a)?*

The probability is ______ (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

*c. If the weight assumptions were revised so that the new
capacity became 20 passengers and the gondola is filled with 20
randomly selected skiers, what is the probability that their mean
weight exceeds 187.5 lb, which is the maximum mean weight that
does not cause the total load to exceed 3750 lb?*

The probability is ________

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

*d. Is the new capacity of 20 passengers safe?*

Since the probability of overloading is
*EITHER**under 5% / over 50% ,* the
new capacity *EITHER**does not appear /
does appear* to be safe enough.

8. A ski gondola carries skiers to the top of a mountain. It
bears a plaque stating that the maximum capacity is 13 people or
2132 lb. That capacity will be exceeded if 13 people have weights
with a mean greater than 2132lb/13 = 164 lb. Assume that weights of
passengers are normally distributed with a mean of 181 lb and a
standard deviation of 40.9 lb. Complete parts a through c
below.
Find the probability that 13 randomly selected...
