3. Each month, an American household generates an average of 28 pounds of


newspaper for garbage or recycling. Assume the standard deviation is 2 pounds. If
a household is selected at random, find the probability of its generating
(Assume the variable is approximately normally distributed)
a.

Between 27 and 31 pounds per month.

Answer

The probability of generating is 0.62465526


Or 62%

b.

More than 30.2 pounds per month.

Answer

The probability of generating is 0.135666061


Or 14%

4. The Malaysian Automobile Association reports that the average time it takes to
respond to an emergency call is 25 minutes. Assume the variable is approximately
normally distributed and the standard deviation is 4.5 minutes. If 80 calls are
randomly selected, approximately how many will be responded to in less than 15
minutes?

Answer

Approximately 1 call will be responded to in


under 15 minutes
