Class 05 Assignment

Due Wed February 1, 2012

1. (EMBS problem 19, page 260) The average amount of precipitation in Dallas,

Texas during April is 3.5 inches (The World Almanac, 2000). Assume that a normal

distribution applies and that the standard deviation is 0.8 inches.

a. What percentage of Aprils do we expect precipitation to exceed 5 inches?

b. What percentage of Aprils do we expect less than 3 inches?

c. A month is classified as extremely wet if the amount of precipitation is in the

upper 10% for that month. How much precipitation must there be in April for it to be

classified as extremely wet?

a. = 1-normdist(5,3.5,.8,true) = 0.030 = 3.0%

b = normdist(3,3.5,.8,true) = 0.266 = 26.6%

c = norminv(.9,3.5,.8) = 4.525 inches

**2. (EMBS problem 23, page 260) The time needed to complete a final exam in a
**

particular college course is normally distributed with a mean of 80 minutes and a

standard deviation of 10 minutes.

a. What is the probability a student completes the exam in one hour or less?

b. What is the probability the student will complete the exam in more than 60 but

less than 75 minutes?

c. The distribution of number of hours to complete this exam is normal with a mean

of 1.333. What is the variance?

d. Assume the class has 60 students and the period is only 90 minutes long. What

percentage of students do we expect will not be able to finish the exam?

e. (extra credit) How many of the 60 will not be able to complete the exam in the 90

minutes? (State any additional assumptions you make in answering part e.)

**a. = normdist(60,80,10,true) = 0.023
**

b = normdist(75,80,10,true) – normdist(60,80,10,true) = 0.309 – 0.023 =

0.286

c = the standard deviation in hours is 10/60. The variance in hours is the

square of this = 0.028

d.=1-normdist(90,80,10,true) = 0.159

e. The number not finishing is a random variable. If completion times are

independent and identically distributed across the 60 students, then the

159 .number not finishing will be binomially distribution with n=60 and p = 0.

16 ounces.4.two (actually it is 1.95 to 10.05 to 10. then the best guess of $4.53 20. This translates to a standard deviation of ($5.95 9. and Cy says there is a 95% probability total sales will be between $3.25 to 10.5 million. The actual amount in a bottle will be normally distributed with mean 10..05 10. The probability sales will exceed $5 is then 1 – normdist(5.15 10. BIN < 9.31 24.91 .95 and less than 10.5 and $5.2 fluid ounces.5)/2 = $0.5 .15 to 10.35 10. Cy is the firm’s expert forecaster who uses the language of probability when making forecasts.91 11.52 5.45 > 10.5 is the mean.25 10. If the machine fills 100 bottles.true) = 0.45 Expected Count 5. To find the standard deviation.5 million. 4.96) of the mean.159.52 20.35 to 10.31 11.05? And so on….5.$4.3. what is the probability sales will exceed $5 million next year? If the normal distribution applies. how many bottles do we expect in each of the following seven bins? In other words.2 ounces and standard deviation of 0. If the normal distribution applies.5 million.5.95 ounces? How many do we expect will contain more than 9. how many of the 100 bottles do we expect will contain less than 9.. With respect to next year’s total sales. The filling machine is set to fill bottles with a target (mean) amount of 10. Cy’s best guess is $4. we use the fact that there is about a 95% probability the random variable will be within +/.

059) = 11.2.0.true)normdist(lowerbinbound.2.16.2.true)-normidst(9.05.2. .95.10..174-0.0.16.The expected count in any cell will be 100*[NORMDIST(upperbinlbound.0.true)].10.10.16.true)] = 100*(0. So for the second bin.16.10.52 bottles. we have = 100*[normdist(10.
