Week 5 RES/ 341 Chapter Exercises:
7.54 The fracture strength of a certain type of manufactured glass is normally distributed with a mean of 579 MPa with a standard deviation of 14 MPa. (a) What is the probability that a randomly chosen sample of glass will break at less than 579 MPa? (b) More than 590 MPa? (c) Less than 600 MPa? (Data are from Science 283 [February 26, 1999], p. 1296.)
A) What is the probability that a randomly chosen sample of glass will break at less than 579 MPa? z(579) = (579-579)/14 = 0
P(x < 579) = P(z<0) = 0.5000 B) More than 590 MPa? z(590) = (590-579)/14= 11/14= 0.7857
P(x<500) = P(z< 0.7857) = 0.2160 C) Less Than 600 MPa? z(600) = (600-579)/14 = 21/14= 3/2
P(x<600) = =P(z<3/2) = 0.9332
7.56 In a certain microwave oven on the high power setting, the time it takes a randomly chosen kernel of popcorn to pop is normally distributed with a mean of 140 seconds and a standard deviation of 25 seconds. What percentage of the kernels will fail to pop if the popcorn is cooked for (a) 2 minutes? (b) Three minutes? (c) If you wanted 95 percent of the kernels to pop, what time would you allow? (d) If you wanted 99 percent to pop?
A) 2 minutes = 120 seconds z(120) = 120-150)/25= -30/25 = -6/5= -1.2
P(z>-1.2) = 0.1151
B) 3 minutes = 180 seconds z(180) = (180-150)/25=30/25 = 6/5 = 1.2
P(z>1.2) = 0.1151
C) If you want 95% of the kernels to pop, what time would you allow?
(.95) = 1.645 x-150 = 25*1.645 x = 41.12 = 150= 191.12 seconds x = 3 minutes and 11.12 seconds
D) If you want 99% to pop…
(.99) = 2.326
2.326 = (x-150)/25 x = 25* 2.326 + 150 x= 208.16 seconds x = 3 minutes and 28.16 seconds
8.46 A random sample of 10 miniature Tootsie Rolls was taken from a bag. Each piece was weighed on a very accurate scale. The results in grams were

(Data are from a project by MBA student Henry Scussel.) There are many factors that can influence weight variation in the production of Tootsie Rolls. The equipment that the Tootsie Rolls are manufactured on could be a factor if they are not calibrated properly or as required.

Taking its square, the sample size is found as 225. Chapter 9 Exercise 1 No it is not a good defense. If you choose 40 random employees from the corporation, the standard error would equal 6/Square root of 40 = .95 days.

## Fern Spore Germination and the Effects of Ammonium Nitrate

2326 Words | 10 PagesLess germinated in the presence of 1% ammonium nitrate compared to the spores not in the presence of ammonium nitrate. In other studies done, when ammonium is used to provide the nitrogen source for photosynthetic spores, they will not grow or germinate properly, and may show abnormalities and inhibited growth (Melan & Whittier, 1990). That is exactly what our experimental data showed us. After preforming the tests and compiling all the replicate data, we found that in the control group there was an average of 50.5 germinated spores per plate. In the plates containing 1% ammonium nitrate there was an average germination rate of 28.5 spores per plate.

256 Words | 2 PagesWeek Three Discussion Questions • Can the probability be more than 1 or less than 0? Explain why or why not. According to the Statistics for Business and Economics book, probabilities have to follow two basic rules and one of them is that the number has to be between 0 and 1. Therefore, the probability cannot be more than 1 and less than 0. • Based on the data collected on a typical day, what is the probability that oil change will take 15 minutes or less time?
