A personal computer is used for office work at home, research, communication, personal finances, education, entertainment, social networking, and a myriad of other things. Suppose that the average number of hours a household personal computer is used for entertainment is two hours per day. Assume the times for entertainment are normally distributed and the standard deviation for the times is half an hour.
a. Find the probability that a household personal computer is used for entertainment between 1.8 and 2.75 hours per day.
a. Let
X = the amount of time (in hours) a household personal computer is used for entertainment.
X ~
N (2, 0.5) where
μ = 2 and
σ = 0.5.
Find
P (1.8<
x <2.75).
The probability for which you are looking is the area
betweenx = 1.8 and
x = 2.75.
P (1.8<
x <2.75) = 0.5886
normalcdf(1.8,2.75,2,0.5) = 0.5886
The probability that a household personal computer is used between 1.8 and 2.75 hours per day for entertainment is 0.5886.
b. Find the maximum number of hours per day that the bottom quartile of households uses a personal computer for entertainment.
b. To find the maximum number of hours per day that the bottom quartile of households uses a personal computer for entertainment,
find the 25
^{th} percentile,k , where
P (
x <
k ) = 0.25.
invNorm(0.25,2,0.5) = 1.66
The maximum number of hours per day that the bottom quartile of households uses a personal computer for entertainment is 1.66 hours.
The golf scores for a school team were normally distributed with a mean of 68 and a standard deviation of three. Find the probability that a golfer scored between 66 and 70.
There are approximately one billion smartphone users in the world today. In the United States the ages 13 to 55+ of smartphone users approximately follow a normal distribution with approximate mean and standard deviation of 36.9 years and 13.9 years, respectively.
a. Determine the probability that a random smartphone user in the age range 13 to 55+ is between 23 and 64.7 years old.
you are working for a bank.The bank manager wants to know the mean waiting time for all customers who visit this bank. she has asked you to estimate this mean by taking a sample . Briefly explain how you will conduct this study. assume the data set on waiting times for 10 customers who visit a bank. Then estimate the population mean. choose your own confidence level.
how can we find the expectation of any function of X?

In a recent survey of nurses in Region II, it was found out that the average monthly net income of nurses is Php 8,048.25. Suppose a researcher wants to test this figure by taking a random sample of 158 nurses in Region II to determine whether the monthly income has changed. Supposed further that th
