ISOM 111 L6-L7, Fall 2009 1 Homework 3 Solutions I . Problems 5.14 (p.194) of the textbook. Solution : (a) The probability curve f ( x ) is f ( x ) = ( 1 / 3 , if 3 x 6 0 , otherwise . (b) 2 3 4 5 6 7 0.0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 Probability Curve of Rainfall x f(x) (c) May rainfall will be at least four inches with probability (6 - 4) / (6 - 3) = 2 / 3; at least five inches with probability (6 - 5) / (6 - 3) = 1 / 3; and at most 4.5 inches with probability (4 . 5 - 3) / (6 - 3) = 1 / 2. II . Problem 5.28[c(1), c(3), d] (p.209) of the textbook. Solution : (c) Let X be the IQ score of a randomly selected person. X is normally distributed with mean 100 and standard deviation 16. c(1) P ( X > 140) = P ( Z > (140 - 100) / 16) = P ( Z > 2 . 5) 0 . 5 - 0 . 4938 = 0 . 0062 .
