. Find the following probabilities.

  • a. Pr(Z <1.32)

  • b. Pr(Z >1.32)

  • c. Pr(Z >−0.213)

  • d. Pr(Z >−0.213|Z <1.32)

    • 02. Draw the standard normal curve and shad the probability corresponding to

Pr(1.05 <Z <1.25)

. Calculate this probability.

  • 03. Consider the following standard normal curve.

hours. It is found that

5

% of these light bulbs last for more than

222

hours. Find the variance,

correct to 3 signi cant gures.

 
  • 10. The time taken for Olly to commute to his work in the morining follows a normal distribution with mean

90

minutes and standard deviation

9.6

minutes.

  • a. Find the probability that Olly takes londer than

    • 105 minutes to commute

b. Find the probability that Olly takes between

95

minutes to

105

minutes to commute

c. Find the minimum commute time

k

for Olly, above which the latest

10

% commute times fall in the distribution
