1.  Assume the speed of vehicles along a stretch of I-10 has an approximately normal distribution with a mean of 71 mph and a standard deviation of 8 mph.

 

The current speed limit is 65 mph.

 

a.  What proportion of vehicles travel less than or equal to the speed limit?

      P(x<=65)=

      Enter answer as a decimal rounded to 4 places with a 0 to the left of the decimal point.

      Do not enter answer as a percent.

b.   What proportion of the vehicles would be going less than or equal to 50 mph?

        P(x<=50)=

       Enter answer as a decimal rounded to 4 decimal places with a 0 to the left of the decimal point.

       Do not enter answer as a percent.

c.  A new speed limit (x) will be initiated such that 10% of vehicles will be equal to or over the speed limit.

         What is the new speed limit (x) based on this criterion?

         P(x>=X)=.10

         Enter answer rounded to 1 decimal place.

2.  Suppose that the distance of fly balls hit to the outfield (in baseball) is normally distributed with a mean of 250 feet and a standard deviation of 50 feet.

 

If x = distance in feet for a fly ball, then x~_____(_____,_____)   = x~___N__(_250_,_50_)

 

a.  If a fly ball is randomly chosen from this distribution, what is the probability that the ball traveled fewer than 220 feet?

 

    Enter answer rounded to 4 decimal places with 0 to the left of the decimal point. Do not enter answer as a percent.

b.  Find the 80th percentile of the distribution of fly balls. (At what distance or less will the ball travel 80% of the time.)

 

            P(X<=X)=.80

 

Enter answer rounded to 0 decimal places.

(Enter answer as an integer.)

 

3.  Suppose that the distance of fly balls hit to the outfield (in baseball) is normally distributed with a mean of 250 feet and a standard deviation of 50 feet.
