1.

The weight of coffee in glass jars labelled 100 g is normally distributed with mean 101.80 g

and standard deviation 0.72 g. The weight of an empty glass jar is normally distributed with

mean 260.00 g and standard deviation 5.45 g. The weight of a glass jar is independent of the

weight of the coffee it contains.

Find the probability that a randomly selected jar weighs less than 266 g and contains less than

100 g of coffee. Give your answer to 2 significant figures.

Data relating to the lifetimes (to the nearest hour) of a random sample of 200 light bulbs from

the production line of a manufacturer were summarised in a group frequency table. The

mid-point of each group in the table was represented by x and the corresponding frequency

( x 755.0)

for that group by f. The data were then coded using y =

and summarised as

2.5

follows:

fy = 467, fy 2 = 9179.

(a) Calculate estimates of the mean and the standard deviation of the lifetimes of this sample

of bulbs.

(9 marks)

An estimate of the interquartile range for these data was 27.7 hours.

(b) Explain, giving a reason, whether you would recommend the manufacturer to use the

interquartile range or the standard deviation to represent the spread of lifetimes of the bulbs

from this production line.

A customer wishes to withdraw money from a cash machine. To do this it is necessary to type

a PIN number into the machine. The customer is unsure of this number. If the wrong number

is typed in, the customer can try again up to a maximum of four attempts in total. Attempts to

type in the correct number are independent and the probability of success at each attempt

is 0.6.

(a) Show that the probability that the customer types in the correct number at the third

attempt is 0.096.

(2 marks)

The random variable A represents the number of attempts made to type in the correct PIN

number, regardless of whether or not the attempt is successful.

(b) Find the probability distribution of A.

(2 marks)

(c) Calculate the probability that the customer types in the correct number in four or fewer

attempts.

(2 marks)

(d) Calculate E(A) and Var(A).

A keep-fit enthusiast swims, runs or cycles each day with probabilities 0.2, 0.3 and 0.5

respectively. If he swims he then spends time in the sauna with probability 0.35. The

probabilities that he spends time in the sauna after running or cycling are 0.2 and 0.45

respectively.

(a) Represent this information on a tree diagram.

(3 marks)

(b) Find the probability that on any particular day he uses the sauna.

(3 marks)

(c) Given that he uses the sauna one day, find the probability that he had been swimming.

(3 marks)

(d) Given that he did not use the sauna one day, find the probability that he had been

swimming.

To test the heating of tyre material, tyres are run on a test rig at chosen speeds under given

conditions of load, pressure and surrounding temperature. The following table gives values

shoulder of the tyre for a particular tyre material.

these points.

(1 mark)

(c) Find the values of a and b.

from the value given in the table.

(2 marks)

A tyre specialist wants to estimate the temperature of this tyre material at 12 mph and

85 mph.

(f ) Explain briefly whether or not you would recommend the specialist to use this regression

equation to obtain these estimates.
