SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question.
Using the following uniform density curve, answer the question.
1) What is the probability that the random variable has a value greater than 2?
1)
Assume that the weight loss for the first month of a diet program varies between 6 pounds and 12 pounds, and is
spread evenly over the range of possibilities, so that there is a uniform distribution. Find the probability of the given
range of pounds lost.
2) More than 11 pounds
2)
Find the area of the shaded region. The graph depicts the standard normal distribution with mean 0 and standard
deviation 1.
3)
3)
-2.36-1.77-1.18-0.59
0.59 1.18 1.77 2.36
z
Find the indicated z score. The graph depicts the standard normal distribution with mean 0 and standard deviation 1.
4)
z
If z is a standard normal variable, find the probability.
5) The probability that z lies between 0.7 and 1.98
5)
6) P(-0.73 < z < 2.27)
6)
Solve the problem.
7) For a standard normal distribution, find the percentage of data that are more than 2
standard deviations below the mean or more than 3 standard deviations above the
mean.

7)
Solve the problem. Round to the nearest tenth unless indicated otherwise.
8) The amount of rainfall in January in a certain city is normally distributed with a mean of
4.3 inches and a standard deviation of 0.3 inches. Find the value of the quartile Q1.
9) Suppose that replacement times for washing machines are normally distributed with a
mean of 9.5 years and a standard deviation of 1.8 years. Find the replacement time that
separates the top 18% from the bottom 82%.
Find the indicated probability.
10) The lengths of human pregnancies are normally distributed with a mean of 268 days and
a standard deviation of 15 days. What is the probability that a pregnancy lasts at least
300 days?
11) The diameters of pencils produced by a certain machine are normally distributed with a
mean of 0.30 inches and a standard deviation of 0.01 inches. What is the probability that
the diameter of a randomly selected pencil will be less than 0.285 inches?
Solve the problem.
12) A math teacher gives two different tests to measure students' aptitude for math. Scores
on the first test are normally distributed with a mean of 23 and a standard deviation of
4.2. Scores on the second test are normally distributed with a mean of 71 and a standard
deviation of 10.8. Assume that the two tests use different scales to measure the same
aptitude. If a student scores 29 on the first test, what would be his equivalent score on
the second test? (That is, find the score that would put him in the same percentile.)

13) A baseball player has a batting average of 0.346, so the probability of a hit is 0.346.
Assume that his hitting attempts are independent of each other. Assume that the batter
gets up to bat 4 times in each game. Estimate the probability that in 50 consecutive
games, there are at least 45 games in which the batter gets at least one hit. (Hint: first
find the probability that in one game the batter gets at least one hit)
13)
14) In a game of roulette, Jorge places 170 bets of \$1 each on the number 3. A win pays off
with odds 35:1 and on any one spin there is a 1/38 probability that 3 will be the winning
number. Among the 170 bets, what is the minimum number of wins needed for Jorge to
make a profit? Estimate the probability that Jorge will make a profit.
14)
15) A final exam in Math 160 has a mean of 73 with standard deviation 7.8. If 24 students are
randomly selected, find the probability that the mean of their test scores is greater than
71.
15)
16) Human body temperatures are normally distributed with a mean of 98.20°F and a
standard deviation of 0.62°F. If 19 people are randomly selected, find the probability
that their mean body temperature will be less than 98.50°F.
16)
The given values are discrete. Use the continuity correction and describe the region of the normal distribution that
corresponds to the indicated probability.
17) The probability that the number of correct answers is between 18 and 45 inclusive

For the binomial distribution with the given values for n and p, state whether or not it is suitable to use the normal
distribution as an approximation.
24) n = 22 and p = 0.6

31) A product is manufactured in batches of 120 and the overall rate of defects is 5%.
Estimate the probability that a randomly selected batch contains more than 6 defects.
Use the normal distribution to approximate the desired probability.
32) Merta reports that 74% of its trains are on time. A check of 60 randomly selected trains
shows that 38 of them arrived on time. Find the probability that among the 60 trains, 38
or fewer arrive on time. Based on the result, does it seem plausible that the "on-time"
rate of 74% could be correct?
