Question

Suppose that the distribution of the number of items *x*
produced by an assembly line during an 8-hr shift can be
approximated by a normal distribution with mean value 130 and
standard deviation 10. (Round your answers to four decimal
places.)

(a) What is the probability that the number of items produced is
at most 110?

*P*(*x* ? 110) =

(b) What is the probability that at least 105 items are
produced?

*P*(*x* ? 105) =

(c) What is the probability that between 115 and 139 (inclusive)
items are produced?

*P*(115 ? *x* ? 139) =

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that ,

mean = = 130

standard deviation = = 10

(a)

P(x 110) = P((x - ) / (110 - 130) / 10) = P(z -2)

Using standard normal table,

P(x 110) = 0.0228

Probability = 0.0228

(b)

P(x 105) = 1 - P(x < 105)

= 1 - P((x - ) / (105 - 130) / 10)

= 1 - P(z -2.5)

= 1 - 0.0062

= 0.9938

P(x 15) = 0.9938

Probability = 0.9938

(c)

P(115 x 139) = P((115 - 130 / 10) (x - ) / (139 - 130) / 10) )

P(13.7 x 28.9) = P(-1.5 z 0.9)

P(13.7 x 28.9) = P(z 0.9) - P(z -1.5)

P(13.7 x 28.9) = 0.8159 - 0.668 = 0.7491

Probability = 0.7491

suppose 2% of items produced from as assembly line are defective
if we sample 10 items what is the probability that 2 or more are
defective ?here count follows the binomial distribution. suppose
now that we sample 10 items from a small collection like 20 items
and count the number of defectives. resulting random variable is
not binomial .why not?

Suppose that defective items on a production line occur
according to a Poisson distribution, at an average rate of 3
defective items per hour. Let X count the number of defective items
produced over a one-hour period. What is the probability that more
than 4 defective items will be produced during the one-hour
period?

Items produced on an assembly line at a certain production plant
are defect free with a fixed probability. If we observe a sample
proportion of defects of 0.9, what would be the minimum sample size
required to use the CLT to approximate the sampling distribution
for the proportion of randomly sampled products that are defect
free?

Suppose that it is known that the number of items produced in a
factory during a week is a random variable with mean 50.
If the variance of a weekâs production is known to equal 26,
then what can be said about the probability that this weekâs
production will be between 40 and 60?

if the mean no. of flawed items produced by a factory
manufacture line per 2 hour period is two. Assume that the number
of flawed items produced in a one-hour period is observed 9 times,
thus giving 9 independent observations Y1 ,
Y2 ,...Y9.. Find the probability that Y >
3 during at least one of the 9 one-hour intervals.

A mail-order computer software business has six telephone
lines. Let x denote the number of lines in use at a specified time.
The probability distribution of x is as follows:
X P(x)
0 0.11
1 0.17
2 0.20
3 0.25
4 0.15
5 0.08
6 0.04
Calculate the probability of:
(a). at most three lines are in use.
(b). fewer than three lines are in use.
(c). at least three lines are in use.
(d). between two and five lines...

A company operates an assembly line. The company believes that
there is a 3% probability that any given item produced on the line
will contain a defect. If 100 items are pulled at random from the
line, what is the probability there will be exactly 4 defective
items? ____
If 100 items are pulled at random from the line, what is the
probability there will be 9 or more defective items? _______
If X = the number of defectives in...

Suppose that 10% of all steel shafts produced by a certain
process are nonconforming but can be reworked (rather than having
to be scrapped). Consider a random sample of 200 shafts, and let
X denote the number among these that are nonconforming and
can be reworked. (Round your answers to four decimal places.)
(a) What is the (approximate) probability that X is at
most 30?
(b) What is the (approximate) probability that X is less
than 30?
(c) What is...

The electrical system for an assembly line has four components
arranged in two parallel subsystems as shown in the diagram below.
Each of the four components (labeled 1, 2, 3, 4) are independent
and each has a 10% chance of failure. Because the components are
independent, the two subsystems (labeled A and B) are also
independent. If one component in a subsystem fails, then the whole
subsystem fails because the power cannot get through. However,
because there are two subsystems,...
