Question

When used in a particular DVD player, the lifetime of a certain brand of battery is normally distributed with a mean value of 12 hours and a standard deviation of 0.8 hours. Suppose that two new batteries are independently selected and put into the player. The player ceases to function as soon as one of the batteries fails. (Use a table or technology.)

(a) What is the probability that the DVD player functions for at least 10 hours? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

(b) What is the probability that the DVD player works for at most 13 hours? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

(c) Find a number x* such that only 10% of all DVD players will function without battery replacement for more than x* hours. (Round your answer to two decimal places.) x* = hr

Answer #1

**Solution:**

a) Probability that the DVD player functions for at least 10 hours

b) Probability that the DVD player works for at most 13 hours

c) number x* such that only 10% of all DVD players will function without battery replacement for more than x* hours.

Given that

µ = 12

σ = 0.8

for given 0.10 value z = 1.645

? = ?? + ?

= 0.8 * 1.645 + 12

= 13.316

The lifetime of a certain brand of battery is known to have a
standard deviation of 16 hours. Suppose that a random sample of 50
such batteries has a mean lifetime of 37.6 hours. Based on this
sample, find a 90% confidence interval for the true mean lifetime
of all batteries of this brand. Then complete the table below.
Carry your intermediate computations to at least three decimal
places. Round your answers to one decimal place. ( If necessary,
consult...

The average lifetime of batteries of a particular brand are
known to be normally distributed with a standard deviation 8 hours.
How large a sample size would be required to estimate the average
lifetime within 2 hours with a 95% confidence?
If you get a decimal in your answer, always round it up
for the sample size.

The probability that a DVD player produced by VCA Television is
defective is estimated to be 0.04. A sample of ten players is
selected at random. (Round your answers to four decimal places.)
(a) What is the probability that the sample contains no defective
units? (b) What is the probability that the sample contains at most
two defective units?
