At least 75% of the prices of the meals will be between $13.75 and $53.75. G3 b) For any value z, at least 1-(l/z2) of the data values will lie within z standard deviations of the mean Z-score for $50 (50-33.75)/10 = 1.625 3 1-(lI(1.625~)) = 62.1% 3 The largest proportion of meals that could be larger than $50 is (100-62.1) = 37.9% 1 c) Mean price = $33.75 x 8.0916 = 273.09 yen Standard Deviation = $10 x 8.0916 = 80.92 yen J! 1 This will not change your answer from part a in terms of the z-scores.

Procedures z-score (10-7.9)/2.9 = 0.724 (11-7.9)/2.9 = 1.07 (8-7.9)/2.9 = 0.034 Time z-score (47-27.9)/19.6 = 0.974 (26-27.9)/19.6 = -0.097 (46-27.9)/19.6 = 0.923 Cost z-score (15.1-14.2)/12.9 = 0.07 (47.3-14.2)/12.9 = 2.566 (25.3-14.2)/12.9 = 0.860 Combined z-score 1.768 3.733 or 3.539 1.817
