1. Body temperature measured in degrees Fahrenheit of randomly selected normal/healthy adults:

98.6        98.6        98.0        99.0        98.4        98_4      98.4        98.7        98.9        98.8

a. The mean body temperature is:

b. The standard deviation of the body temperatures is:

c. Assuming body temperature is normally distributed, what is the range (low to high) of body temperatures for the middle 68% of normal and healthy adults?

d. What is the range (low to high) of body temperatures for the middle 95% of normal and healthy adults?

e. Use this range of values in a meaningful sentence.

f. What is the Z-score for an adult with a body temperature of 99 degrees Fahrenheit? Z=

g. Use the z-table to determine the likelihood a normal/healthy adult has a body temperature over 99 degrees Fahrenheit. Diagram this problem by shading the desired region under the bell curve, and write a sentence using the probability from the table.

Probability =

2. Weights measured in grams of randomly selected M&M plain candies:

0.957  0.912  0.925  0.886  0.920  0.958

0.915  0.914  0.947  0.939  0.842

a. The mean weight of the M&M's is:

b. The standard deviation of the weight of the M&M's is:

c. Assuming the weight of M&M's is normally distributed, what is the range ( low to high ) of weights of the middle 68% of M&M's?

d. What is the range of weights (low to high) of the middle 95% of M&M's?

e. Use this range in a meaningful sentence.

f. Calculate the z-score of finding an M&M candy weighing less than 0.886 grams.

g. Use a z-table to find the probability of finding an M&M candy weighing less than 0.886 grams. Diagram this problem by shading the desired region under the bell curve, and write a sentence using the probability from the table.

b. What percentile does Johnny's score put him in?

4. Professor Ivy's students have a Mean grade of 69.5 and a Standard Deviation of 6.5.

a. If Johnny has a 62 in the class, what would the z-score for Johnny's grade be?

5. The average IQ score is 100 points with a standard deviation of 15 points. Uncle Bob says that his IQ is in the 90th percentile. Use this information and a z-table to find Uncle Bob's IQ. Hint: Use the z-table to look up his z-score then solve for his score x in the z-score formula.

6. The average height of men in the US is 177.6 cm

a. How tall is this in inches?

b. If the standard deviation for the heights is 3 inches, and Uncle Bob claims that he is also in the 90th percentile for height, how tall is he? Hint: Use the z-table to look up his z-score then solve for his score x in the z-score formula.

Answer the following by drawing the bell (normal) curve. Label and shade the region desired. You will need to use the z-table from the class session to work the following problems.

8. The life of a 9-volt battery is normally distributed with a mean of μ = 2000 hours and a standard deviation of σ = 40 hours. What is the proportion of batteries with an average life of 2100 hours or more? Draw a normal curve, label the mean and standard deviation, and shade the proportion of batteries with an average life of 2100 hours or more.

9. People spend an average of 7 hours per day on their home computers with a standard deviation of 1 hour. What proportion spends at least 5 hours per day on their home computers? Write a sentence that states your findings.

10. Roadworthy tires last an average of 30,000 miles with a standard deviation of 2500 miles. What proportion of these tires do not last more than 25,000 miles?

11. The average annual consumption of ice cream per capita is μ = 16.5 lbs. in the US. Estimate the total consumption of ice cream in the US. (You may need to look up some information to calculate this). If the standard deviation is σ = 2.5 lbs, what proportion of the US consumes less than 10 lbs. per year?

Total consumption =

Proportion who consume less than 10 lbs. per year =
