Problem 5E

If X is normally distributed with a mean of 6 and a variance of 25, find

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 5E

Step1 of 3:

We have random variable X which follows normal distribution with mean 6 and variance 25.

That is

= 5.

We need to find,

a).

b).

c).

d).

e).

f).

g).

h).

Step2 of 3:

Let “X” be random variable which follows normal distribution with parameters .

That is X N()

X N()

The appropriate Z statistics is given by

Z = N()

a).

=

Here,  is obtained by using standard normal table(Area under normal curve). In Area under normal curve we have to see row 1.2 under column 0.00

= 0.5000 In Area under normal curve we have to see row 0.0 under column 0.00

= 0.8849 - 0.5000

= 0.3849.

Hence, = 0.3849.

b).

Here,  is obtained by using standard normal table(Area under normal curve). In Area under normal curve we have to see row 0.4 under column 0.00

= 0.8849 In Area under normal curve we have to see row 1.2 under column 0.00

= 0.6554 + 0.8849 - 1

= 1.5403 - 1

= 0.5403

Hence, =0.5403.

c).

Here,  is obtained by using standard normal table(Area under normal curve). In Area under normal curve we have to see row 1.6 under column 0.00

= 0.8849 In Area under normal curve we have to see row 1.2 under column 0.00

= 0.9452 - 0.8849

= 0.0603

Hence,  = 0.0603.

d).

= 1 -

= 1 -

= 1 -

= 1 -

= 1 -

Here,is obtained by using standard normal table(Area under normal curve).

In Area under normal curve we have to see row 3.0 under column 0.00

= 1 - 0.9987

= 0.0013.

Hence, = 0.0013.

Step3 of 3:

e).

=

=

=

=

=

=

=

Here,  is obtained by using standard normal table(Area under normal curve). In Area under normal curve we have to see row 1.0 under column 0.00

= 0.1587 In Area under normal curve we have to see row -1.0 under column 0.00

= 0.8413 - 0.1587

= 0.6826

Hence, = 0.6826.

f).

=

=

=

=

=

=

Here,  is obtained by using standard normal table(Area under normal curve). In Area under normal curve we have to see row 2.0 under column 0.00

= 0.0228 In Area under normal curve we have to see row -2.0 under column 0.00

= 0.9772 - 0.0228

= 0.9544

Hence, 0.9544.

g).

=

Here,  is obtained by using standard normal table(Area under normal curve). In Area under normal curve we have to see row 3.0 under column 0.00

= 0.0013 In Area under normal curve we have to see row -3.0 under column 0.00

= 0.9987 - 0.0013

= 0.9974

Hence, 0.9974.

h).
