Question

The mean life of a certain brand of auto batteries is 51 months with a standard deviation of 6 months. Assume that the lives of all auto batteries of this brand have a bell-shaped distribution. Using the empirical rule, find the percentage of auto batteries of this brand that have a life of

a. 33 to 69 months: %

b. 45 to 57 months: %

Answer #1

The empirical rule is a statistical rule which states that for a normal distribution, almost all data will fall within three standard deviations of the mean. Broken down, the empirical rule shows that 68% will fall within the first standard deviation, 95% within the first two standard deviations, and 99.7% will fall within the first three standard deviations of the distribution's average.

a. Now we need to find

As distribution is normal we can convert x to z

So as per empirical rule answer here is 99.7%

b. Here we need to find

As distribution is normal we can convert x to z

So as per empirical rule answer here is 68%

Suppose that a certain brand of light bulb has a mean life of
450 hours and a standard deviation of 73 hours. Assuming the data
are bell-shaped: (Show work to get full credit)
a. Would it be unusual for a light bulb to have a life span of
320 hours? 615 hours? Justify each response.
b. According to the Empirical Rule, 99.7% of the light bulbs
have a lifetime between what two values?
c. Determine the percentage of light bulbs...

Grand Auto Corporation produces auto batteries. The company
claims that its top-of-theline Never Die batteries are good, on
average, for 65 months. A consumer protection agency tested 25 such
batteries to check this claim. It found that the mean life of these
25 batteries is 63.4 months. Assume that the life of the batteries
follow a normal distribution with standard deviation is 3
months.
(a) Using a 1% significance level, test the hypothesis that the
average life of Never Die...

Suppose that IQ scores have a bell-shaped distribution with a
mean of 104 and a standard deviation of 18. Using the empirical
rule, what percentage of IQ scores are between 50 and 158?

the mean life of a name brand aa battery is 19 hours. a consumer
group is interested in determining if generic aa batteries have a
shorter mean life. this group tested a random sample of 9 generic
AA batteries resulting in a mean life of 17.4 hours with a standard
deviation of 1.5 hours. you may assume that battery lives follow a
normal distribution. At 1% level of significance, do the generic AA
batteries have a mean life shorter than...

Suppose that IQ scores have a bell-shaped distribution with a
mean of 103 and a standard deviation of 15. Using the empirical
rule, what percentage of IQ scores are at least 133? Please do not
round your answer.

Suppose that IQ scores have a bell-shaped distribution with a
mean of 105 and a standard deviation of 14. Using the empirical
rule, what percentage of IQ scores are at least 77 ? Please do not
round your answer.

Suppose that IQ scores
have a bell-shaped distribution with a mean of 104 and a standard
deviation of 15. Using the empirical rule, what percentage of IQ
scores are at least 59? Please do not round your answer.

Suppose that IQ scores have a bell-shaped distribution with a
mean of 98 and a standard deviation of 17. Using the empirical
rule, what percentage of IQ scores are greater than 115? Please do
not round your answer.

Suppose that IQ scores have a bell-shaped distribution with a
mean of 96 and a standard deviation of 12. Using the empirical
rule, what percentage of IQ scores are less than 120? Please do not
round your answer.

The mean length of a human pregnancy is
265265
days, with a standard deviation of
1111
days. Use the empirical rule to determine the percentage of
women whose pregnancies are between
254254
and
276276
days. (Assume the data set has a bell-shaped
distribution.)
