Steven Weber Dept. of ECE Drexel University ENGR 361: Statistical Analysis of Engineering Systems (Spring, 2010) Recitation 7 Solutions Question 1. Let X N ( μ,σ 2 ) denote a normal rv with mean μ and variance σ 2 , and let Z N (0 , 1) denote a standard normal. Use the table in the back of your book to answer the following questions. Please do the following. 1. Compute P ( Z 2 . 0) . P ( Z 2 . 0) = Φ(2 . 0) = 0 . 9772 . (1) 2. Let X N (3 , 9) . Compute P (0 X 3) .

Find the smallest classroom size sucient to hold all interested students with probability at least 90% . Show all your steps and explain your solution procedure.
