 07. The random variable X can take negative and postive values. X is normally distributed with mean 3 and variance 2.25 . Find the probability that X has positive value. 08. Given Z ∼ N(0, 1) , nd k in each of the following. a. Pr(Z k) =0.05 09. The life of a light bulb has a normal distribution with mean 210 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
