A lifetime of a light bulb is normally distributed with the mean of 10000 hours and standard deviation of 1000 hours. There are 100 such bulbs in the building (installed at the same time). a) What is the probability that any given bulb lasts more than 12000 hours? b) What is the probability that any given bulb burns out before 9000 hours? c) What is the probability that we would have to replace at least one bulb in 5000 hours? d) Assuming we do not replace bulbs, what is the probability that the building is in total darkness in 15000 hours? 3. A pharmaceutical company sells serum in vials with nominal volume of 2.5 ml. A regulation specifies that no more than 1% of all vials should be under-filled.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
