Totals Instead of Averages: Airplane Takeoff Time The taxi and takeoff time for commercial jets is a random variable x with a mean of 8.5 minutes and a standard deviation of 2.5 minutes. Assume that the distribution of taxi and takeoff times is approximately normal. You may assume that the jets are lined up on a runway so that one taxies and takes off immediately after the other, and that they take off one at a time on a given runway. What is the probability that for 36 jets on a given runway, total taxi and takeoff time will be (a) less than 320 minutes? (b) more than 275 minutes? (c) between 275 and 320 minutes? Hint: See 19.
