Question

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ American Time Use Survey showed that the amount of time spent using a computer for leisure varied greatly by age. Individuals age 75 and over averaged 0.35 hour (21 minutes) per day using a computer for leisure. Individuals ages 15 to 19 spend 1.1 hour per day using a computer for leisure. If these times follow an exponential distribution, find the proportion of each group that spends: Less than 18 minutes per day using a computer for leisure. (Round your answers to 4 decimal places.) More than 2 hours. (Round your answers to 4 decimal places.) Between 36 minutes and 108 minutes using a computer for leisure. (Round your answers to 4 decimal places.) Find the 22th percentile. Seventy-eight percent spend more than what amount of time? (Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)

Answer #1

a) for age 75 and over : P(less than 18 minutes)
=1-e^{-18/(0.35*60)} =0.5756

for age ages 15 to 19 : P(less than 18 minutes)
=1-e^{-18/(1.1*60)} =0.2387

b)

for age 75 and over : P( More than 2 hours )
=e^{-18/(0.35*60)} =0.0033

for age ages 15 to 19 : P( More than 2 hours )
=e^{-18/(1.1*60)} =0.1623

c)

for age 75 and over : P( Between 36 minutes and 108 minutes ) =0.1743

for age ages 15 to 19 : P( Between 36 minutes and 108 minutes ) =0.3849

d)

for age 75 and over : 22nd percentile = 5.22 minutes

for age ages 15 to 19 : 22nd percentile = 16.40 minutes

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ American Time Use Survey showed
that the amount of time spent using a computer for leisure varied
greatly by age. Individuals age 75 and over averaged 0.25 hour (15
minutes) per day using a computer for leisure. Individuals ages 15
to 19 spend 0.9 hour per day using a computer for leisure. If these
times follow an exponential distribution, find the proportion of
each group that spends: Less than 14 minutes per day using a...

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ American Time Use
Survey showed that the amount of time spent using a computer
for leisure varied greatly by age. Individuals age 75 and over
averaged 0.15 hour (9 minutes) per day using a computer for
leisure. Individuals ages 15 to 19 spend 1.0 hour per day using a
computer for leisure. If these times follow an exponential
distribution, find the proportion of each group that spends:
Less than 8 minutes per day using a...

A study found that the mean amount of time cars spent in
drive-throughs of a certain fast-food resturant was 146.5 seconds.
Assuming drive-through times are normally distributed with a
standard deviation of 33 seconds.
A.) What is the probability that a randomly selected car will
get through the restaurant's drive-through in less than 102
seconds? _______ (Round to four decimal places as needed).
B.) What is the probability that a randomly selected car will
spend more than 188 seconds in...

In a recent survey of high school students, it was found that
the amount of time spent on reading books per week was normally
distributed with a mean of 28 minutes. Assume the distribution of
weekly reading time follows the normal distribution with a
population standard deviation of 2 minutes. Suppose we select a
sample of 16 high school students. What can we say about the shape
of the distribution of the sample mean time?
What can we say about...

A study found that the mean amount of time cars spent in
drive-throughs of a certain fast-food restaurant was
156.1
seconds. Assuming drive-through times are normally distributed
with a standard deviation of
33 seconds, complete parts (a) through (d) below.
(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected car will
get through the restaurant's drive-through in less than
118 seconds?
The probability that a randomly selected car will get through
the restaurant's drive-through in less than 118 seconds is...

A corporation monitors time spent by office workers browsing the
web on their computers instead of working. In a sample of computer
records of 35 workers, the average amount of time spent browsing in
an eight-hour work day was 53 minutes with standard deviation 11.6
minutes. Construct a 99% confidence interval for the mean number of
hours the office workers spend browsing the web.

Do male college students spend more time than female college
students using a computer? This was one of the questions
investigated by the authors of an article. Each student in a random
sample of 46 male students at a university in England and each
student in a random sample of 38 female students from the same
university kept a diary of how he or she spent time over a
three-week period.
For the sample of males, the mean time spent...

1) The amount of money spent weekly on cleaning, maintenance,
and repairs at a large restaurant was observed over a long period
of time to be approximately normally distributed, with mean
μ = $599 and standard deviation σ = $42.
(a) If $646 is budgeted for next week, what is the probability
that the actual costs will exceed the budgeted amount? (Round your
answer to four decimal places.)
(b) How much should be budgeted for weekly repairs, cleaning, and
maintenance...
