Question

The lifespan of my favorite candle follows a normal distribution with an average of 400 hours and a standard deviation of 50. What is the probability that my candle lasts exactly 400 hours, no more no less? A 100% B 50% C 25% D 0%

Answer #1

The correct option is **D 0%. [ANSWER]**

*Explanation*:

Let X denote the random variable representing the lifespan of the candle in hours.

Now, we are given that X follows a Normal distribution with mean 400 hours and standard deviation 50 hours.

Thus, X follows a continuous distribution.

Now, we know that for any continuous random variable the probability of getting any exact value is zero.

Thus, **P(X=400) = 0 = 0% [ANSWER]**

Assume that the life of an engine follows a normal distribution
with an average life of 12 years and a standard deviation of 2
years. The manufacturer replaces without additional charge all the
motors that fail during the warranty.
a) What is the probability that an engine will fail after 14
years?
b) What is the probability that the engine lasts between 4 to 13
years?

The average life of a battery is 60 hours. Further, the life of
the battery follows a normal distribution with standard deviation
of 5 hours. As a quality control manager, your goal is to limit the
production of defective products. Your company considers a
defective battery to be one that lasts less than 50 hours.
Out of a batch of 100 batteries, what is the expected number of
defective batteries?

the number of hours an American adult watches tv follows a
normal distribution with an average of 6.9 hours a day with a
standard deviation of .68 hours. If we take a random sample of 13
American adults what is the probability they have a sample mean
less than 7.5 hours per day?

hour?
c. What is the equation for the failure rate of the part?

tested will last for less than 270 hours?
What is probability that a battery tested will last between 270
and 330 hours?
The weakest 10% of the population will not exceed what battery
life?

New heat lamps are reported to have the mean lifespan of 100
hours with a standard deviation of 15 hours. Before replacing their
current lamp to the new heat lamps for the university, OSU decided
to test whether the mean lifetime is equal to 100 or not by
sampling 36 heat lamps. They turned them on and recorded the time,
in hours, until each lamp failed. The sample provided a mean
lifespan is 105.1 hours.
a) According to the Central...

batteries with an average life span of 300 hours with a standard
deviation of 75 hours. Assuming the distribution is approximated by
a normal curve fine the probability that the battery will
last:(give 4 decimal places for each answer)
a. Less than 250
hours
b. Between 225 and 375
hours
c. More than 400
hours

The lifetime of a certain battery follows a normal distribution
with a mean 276 minutes and standard deviation 25 minutes. We took
a random sample of 100 of these batteries. What is the probability
that the sample mean of the lifetime will be less than 270
minutes?
