Solution Question 9.31


a. Define:
Then:

P = Width of a Post Card


P R 9<7+6. 5 where . &*38 and 5 !!$'& 38
Pr(Card does not fit in Envelope)=
T <P &*(&l. &* 5 !!$'&
" T <P &*(&l. &* 5 !!$'&

P&*
" T < !!$'&

Where:

&*(&&*
!!$'& l.

&* 5 !!$'& " T <^ #!&

^ R 9<7+6! "

20

Utilizing the Table on Page 709:


T <P &*(&l. &* 5 !!$'& " !*(*) !!#!#
b. Define: X = Number of Cards in a box of 20 that do not fit in envelope
Then:

\ F3897#! : !!#

T <\ #l8 #! : !!# " T <\ "l8 #! : !!#


" !*% !!' (Table Page 694)
Hence, there is 6% probability that 2 or more cards will not fit.
