Question

At a recent state swim meet, all 8 and 9 year olds swam the 50 m. backstroke race. The mean completion time for girls was 80 seconds with a standard deviation of 10. The mean completion time for boys was 85 seconds with a standard deviation of 6. Distributions for both boys and girls are normal.

A. If 5 female competitors are randomly selected from the list of all participants, what is the expected value of the time it took all five of them, cumulatively, to complete their heats?

B. What is the probability that one female competitor chosen at random swam her heat faster than 93 seconds?

C. What is the probability that one male competitor chosen at random swam his heat slower than 93 seconds?

D. One characteristic of the normal distribution is that 95% of cases fall within two standard deviations of the mean. Given this, estimate the proportion of female swimmers who swam faster than 60 seconds

John measured the total playing time of 30 randomly chosen CDs
from his very large collection and found a mean of 77.9 minutes and
a standard deviation of 11.6 minutes. Give the 93% confidence
interval for the population mean, assuming that the population is
approximately normally distributed. Round the endpoints to two
decimal places.
Confidence interval: ( , )

have lower IQs and pick up language more slowly than...

A Nielsen study indicates that 18- to 34-year olds spend a mean
of 93 minutes watching video on their smartphones per week. Source:
Data extracted from bit.ly/2rj8GHm. Assume that the amount of time
watching video on a smartphone per week is normally distributed and
that the standard deviation is 15 minutes. a. What is the
probability that an 18- to 34-year-old spends less than 77 minutes
watching video on his or her smartphone per week? b. What is the
probability...
