So P ( ∑y > 20,000) = P {z > (20,000 – 19,000)/494.97} = P (z > 2.02) = 1 – 0.9783 = 0.0217. The probability that the total weight of the passengers’ baggage will exceed the 20000pound limit is 0.0217 or 2.17%. 4) a) μ = 160 and σ = 20 ⇒ P (y<150) = P {z < (150 160)/20} = P (z <  0.5) = 0.3085. If a single measurement is taken, the probability that this measurement will fail detect that the patient has high blood pressure is 0.3085....
