Question

A gasoline tank for a certain car is designed to hold 15 gallons of gas. Suppose that the actual capacity for a randomly selected tank has a distribution that is approximately normal with the mean of 15 gallons and a standard deviation of 0.15 gallons. If 4 tanks are randomly selected, what is the probability that their average capacity will be between 14.75 and 16.10 gallons?

Please show work and explain, thank you.

Answer #1

For sampling distribution of mean with sample size n,

mean = 15 gallons

standrad deviation =

=

= 0.075

P( < A) = P(Z < (A - )/)

= P(14.75 < < 16.1)

= P( < 16.1) - P( < 14.75)

= P(Z < (16.1 - 15)/0.075) - P(Z < (14.75 - 15)/0.075)

= P(Z < 16.67) - P(Z < -3.33)

= 1 - 0.0004

= **0.9996**

A gasoline tank for a Honda Accord is engineered to hold 15
gallons of gas. Gas tank capacity for a randomly
selected Accord has an approximately normal distribution with mean
15.0 gallons and standard deviation of 0.1 gallons.
(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected Accord has
a gas tank capacity within one standard deviation of the mean?
(b) What is the probability that a randomly selected tank will
hold at most 14.85 gallons? Sketch a graph of this...

A
specific container is designed to hold 55 gallons. Suppose the
actual capactiy X of a randomly chosen container of this type is
normally distributed with mean 55 gallons and standard deviation
1.2 gallons.
a.) What is the probability that a randomly selected container
will hold between 53.5 and 56.0 gallons?
b.) For what container capacity do 94% of containers have that
capacity or larger?
c.) What is the probability that the average amount of 34
randomly selected containers is...

Bilbo owns a gas station. He refills his gas tank once a day
early in the morning. Historical data show that daily demand at his
gas station is relatively stable and has mean = 1000 gallons and
standard deviation = 200 gallons. His gas tank has a capacity of
holding up-to 3000 gallons of gasoline so that is not an issue.
Holding gasoline will occupy financial resources, though, and
therefore Bilbo does not want to hold too much gasoline in...

Stan Moneymaker needs 14 gallons of gasoline to top off his
automobile's gas tank. If he drives an extra eight miles (round
trip) to a gas station on the outskirts of town, Stan can save
$0.15 per gallon on the price of gasoline. Suppose gasoline costs
$2.40 per gallon and Stan's car gets 27 mpg for in-town driving.
Each mile that Stan drives creates one pound of carbon dioxide.
Each pound of CO2 has a cost impact of $0.03 on...

The average number of miles driven on a full tank of gas in a
certain model car before its? low-fuel light comes on is 341.
Assume this mileage follows the normal distribution with a standard
deviation of 29 miles. Complete parts a through d below.
a. What is the probability? that, before the?
low-fuel light comes? on, the car will travel less than 360 miles
on the next tank of? gas? __
?(Round to four decimal places as? needed.)
b....

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...

Question 1:
In the normal error simple linear regression model, suppose all
assumptions hold except constancy of error variance with respect to
X. Suppose E(Y) = V(Y). What transformation of y works to stabilize
the variance?
Question 2:
Let Y1,Y2,...Yn be a random sample for a normal distribution with
mean 10 and variance 4. Let Y(k) denote the Kth order statistics of
this random sample. Approximate the probability:
P(Y(k) <= 8.5) , if K =15 and n = 50.
Please...

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...

According a study, 15 percent of adults in Canada do not use
Internet. Suppose that 10 adults are randomly selected.
a. What is the probability that 3
of the adults do not use the Internet?
b. What is the probability that at
least 3 of the adults do not use the Internet?
c. Now suppose that 200 adults are
randomly selected. What is the probability that at least 180 adults
use Internet?
Please show your work and thank you SO much in advance!...

Suppose that you are interested in estimating the average number
of miles per gallon of gasoline your car can get. You calculate the
miles per gallon for each of the next ten times you fill the tank.
Suppose that in truth, the values for your car are bell-shaped,
with a mean of 25 miles per gallon and a standard deviation of 1.
Find the possible sample means you are likely to get based on your
sample of ten observations. Consider...
