5. Twenty sheets of raw material are examined for surface flaws. The frequency of the number of sheets with a given number of nonconformances per sheet was as follows:

Number of flaws       Frequency

0                                  4

1                                  3

2                                  5

3                                  2

4                                  4

5                                  1

6                                  1

What is the probability of finding a sheet chosen at random which contains 3 or more surface flaws?

6. Professor Kyle has 150 students in his college mathematics lecture class.  The scores on the final exam are normally distributed with a mean of 72.3 and a standard deviation of 8.9.  How many students in the class can be expected to receive a score between 82 and 90?

7. A machine is used to fill bottles of water bottles.  The amount of soda dispensed into each bottle varies slightly.  Suppose the amount of soda dispensed into the bottles is normally distributed.  If the average is 590 and at least 99% of the bottles must have between 585 and 595 milliliters of water, find the greatest standard deviation, to the nearest hundredth, that can be allowed.
