Question

The miles-per-gallon obtained by the 1995 model Z cars is normally distributed with a mean of 22 miles-per-gallon and a standard deviation of 5 miles-per-gallon. a. What is the probability that a car will get between 13.35 and 35.1 miles-per-gallon? b. What is the probability that a car will get more than 29.6 miles-per-gallon? c. What is the probability that a car will get less than 21 miles-per-gallon?

Suppose that the miles-per-gallon (mpg) rating of passenger cars
is normally distributed with a mean and a standard deviation of
33.4 and 3.4 mpg, respectively. [You may find it useful to
reference the z table.] a. What is the probability that a randomly
selected passenger car gets more than 34 mpg? (Round “z” value to 2
decimal places, and final answer to 4 decimal places.) b. What is
the probability that the average mpg of five randomly selected
passenger cars...

Suppose that the miles-per-gallon (mpg) rating of passenger cars
is normally distributed with a mean and a standard deviation of
36.5 and 4.4 mpg, respectively. [You may find it useful to
reference the z table.]
a. What is the probability that a randomly
selected passenger car gets more than 38 mpg? (Round
“z” value to 2 decimal places, and final answer to 4
decimal places.)
b. What is the probability that the average mpg
of three randomly selected passenger cars...

An automobile manufacturer introduces a new model that
averages 27 miles per gallon in the city. A person who plans to
purchase one of these new cars wrote the manufacturer for the
details of the tests, and found out that the standard deviation is
3 miles per gallon. Assume that in-city mileage is approximately
normally distributed (use z score table)
a) What percentage of the time is the car averaging less than
20 miles per gallon for in-city driving.
b)...

Assume that gas mileage for cars is normally distributed with a
mean of 23.5 miles per gallon and a standard deviation of 10 miles
per gallon. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting
work, will receive no credit.
(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected car gets
between 15 and 30 miles per gallon? (Round the answer to 4 decimal
places)
(b) Find the 75th percentile of the gas mileage distribution.
(Round the answer to 2 decimal...

The mean gas mileage for a hybrid car is 56 miles per gallon.
Suppose that the gasoline mileage is approximately normally
distributed with a standard deviation of
3.3 miles per gallon.
(a) What proportion of hybrids gets over 61 miles per
gallon?
(b) What proportion of hybrids gets 52 miles per gallon or
less?
(c) What proportion of hybrids gets between 59 and 62 miles per
gallon?
(d) What is the probability that a randomly selected hybrid gets
less than...

A certain model of automobile has its gas mileage (in miles per
gallon, or mpg) normally distributed, with a mean of 32 mpg and a
standard deviation of 4 mpg. Find the probability that a car
selected at random has the following gas mileages. (Round your
answers to four decimal places.) (a) less than 26 mpg (b) greater
than 34 mpg (c) between 30 and 34 mpg

A certain car model has a mean gas mileage of 31 miles per
gallon (mpg) with a standard deviation 3 mpg. A pizza delivery
company buys 43 of these cars. What is the probability that the
average mileage of the fleet is greater than 30.7 mph

Studies show that gasoline use for compact cars sold in the US
is normally distributed with a mean of 25.5 miles per gallon (mpg)
and a standard deviation of 4.5 mpg. What percentage of compacts
get 30 mpg or more?

A car manufacturer claims that the miles per gallon (mpg) of all
its midsize cars can be modeled with a normal model with N(33,
1.70).
What proportion of cars have miles per gallon less than 31.2
[P(x ≤ 31.2 mpg)]?
What proportion of cars will have miles per gallon greater than
36 [P(x ≥ 36 mpg)]?
What proportion of cars will have miles per gallon greater than
29.7 [P(x ≥ 29.7 mpg)]?
What proportion of cars will have miles per...

A certain car model has a mean gas mileage of 31 miles per
gallon (mpg) with astandard deviation 3 mpg. A pizza delivery
company buys 43 of these cars. What is theprobability that the
average mileage of the fleet is greater than 30.7 mpg?
